My guess is that it would be easier for people to implement a partial
getaddrinfo_a in a Gnulib context than to implement async DNS in an
Emacs context.  I think.  Does Gnulib have getaddrinfo_a scaffolding
done?  (I'm assuming there must be something of the kind per function it
implements.)  Perhaps if that were in place (and included in Emacs),
then it would be even simpler for people to implement the missing OS
X/Windows bits?
