Sorry I was wrong. There isn't. With the 32bit requirement it would
not have been sufficient anyways. Unfortunately it is rather hard to switch
sockaddr* formats in Linux, you would need completely new socket calls
and lots of infrastructure. I see no easy way to do it.
This is like TV. I don't like TV.
