Thanks. I always forget how the nt stuff works.

Yes. Iʼm waiting for Jimmy to tell me if the format works for him,
then Iʼll document whatever we end up with (and it can currently only
return a vector, and includes a port, which is probably not needed).

Iʼd be more inclined to return nil in that case. The effect is the
same, and the caller doesnʼt need to do redundant error handling.

My understanding is that this API only supports ASCII anyway. For
internationalized domain names you'd need to use puny-code (and we
donʼt currently use ENCODE_SYSTEM when calling getaddrinfo elsewhere).

Both, for sure.
