I tried it under Linux, and I get
ok - 2/10
so I guess it works :)

However... I decided to have a look at this getaddrinfo() stuff, and the
first thing that linux manpages say is "creates one or more socket address
structures that can be used by the bind(2) and connect(2)". sendto() is
not mentioned. So, I am wondering if an address prepared by getaddrinfo()
can be used by sendto() or not (it works on Linux, but maybe it is not
required to work?).
Even after reading Nicolas message, I still do not understand why the good
old way of filling sockaddr structures should be replaced with this...

Ok, I am going to read some more documentation...
