That's fine, I can live with that...

Win2k? Not sure about BeOS or the smaller OSes that ffmpeg appears to
support one way or another. Not that I care much about BeOS, but Win2k could
be a possible interest point for me, at least for the time being, it still
has a large userbase and is - in a way - worth keeping compat with. If you
disagree, that's ok and I'll use getaddrinfo() directly (I may still add a
single wrapper for resolving hosts a la resolve_host() / inetaddr_resolve()
or that getaddrinfo()-wrapper in udp.c), some calls can be merged together
such that it takes less code, I'll just remove AVInetAddr and the other
