The major problem is the huge amount of #ifdefs, most of which seem to
come from the fact that we deal with a list of possible addresses in
one case and not the other.  It would help a lot if we fixed things so
that we dealt with a list in either case --- only a one-element list,
if we don't have getaddrinfo, but getaddrinfo2 could hide that and
provide a uniform API regardless.

The SSL patch is contributing a lot of ugliness too.  It would be more
functional as well as cleaner if someone rewrote that code to work in
non-blocking style (which AFAICT should be feasible with the openssl
API, it just wasn't done).
