1) Awhile ago there was a flame war about using SIOCGIFCONF/SIOCGLIFCONF
to get lists of interfaces. This was suggested as being a bad way.

2) bind 9.3snapshot is able to get a list of IPv4 addresses with SIOCGIFCONF,

3) it is not able to get IPv6 addresses with SIOCGLIFCONF.

Marc Andrews, sitting next to me, asked if I knew what the offical magic
was. Can someone point me that officially blessed way to do this?
