sockets.texi is pretty out-of-date (to be nice). It's hard to try and
write networking code using the glibc manual because so much of what you
see in use isn't in there anywhere. I started working on getaddrinfo,
sockaddr_storage, etc., a while back, and have a few patches laying
around somewhere I need to dust off, but anything substantial with the
chapter is likely in the 2.27-2.28 timeline for me, unless someone else
gets to it first.
It's definitely on the radar though.
