Re: (wish list) re: connection_ip()


Well I was just thinking that all net funcs should return IPs
then if you want the name run it through a tohostname() or somesuch
and also be able to take "" and run it through a
toip().  Then you have full control in-db as oppposed to being
at the whim of the DNS process, your DNS, and other things.

Alternatively, you could just do what Java does and take either IP addresses 
_or_ hostnames as addresses and let the server figure it out.

As for connection_ip(), it sounds good but actually, I'd prefer a 
generalized IP<->name converter function, one that doesn't require an 
existing connection to work.
