NO RATINGS
@Max, the issue of IPv6 address size is actually not one to be glossed over lightly.  The definition of DNS getHostInfo calls return IPv6 *before* IPv4 addresses accroding to the RFC.  These addresses are dynamically allocated in the spec.  If I simply send a few thousand DNS responses to the device following a request, I can exhause device memory (DoS attack).  Then the user is "supposed" to remember to free the allocated memory using another call.  One missed deallocation and you've got a substantial memory leak.
