Interesting. I recall the API debates and uncertainty, but I don't
recall having seen anything to indicate that it all got resolved and
we're essentially "ready to go". If I were looking for an IP address
library, I wouldn't know where to go, and I certainly wouldn't know
that there was an option that would become part of the stdlib. Not
sure that counts as the approach "working"... (although I concede that
my lack of a *real* need for an IP address library may be a
contributing factor to my lack of knowledge...)
