I think usually you'd use this for replying to incoming messages in which case you'd
already have the IP addr.  And if you do indeed have a hostname, I think it would be
unwise to cache the IP adress resolution in the application (it might change).

Yes, I was imagining "sendto" combining port, address, and message all in one.
