getaddrinfo() and SRV records.

I'm looking at the current glibc implementation of getaddrinfo() and it 
does not seem to support SRV records. It seems Microsoft and Apple (and 
BSD?) have enabled SRV record support.

Are there already plans to enable SRV record support in getaddrinfo()?

 From my searching it appears like it would be a simple patch to enable 
SRV lookup support, because the api  already allows the specification of 
the protocol(udp or tcp) and the service(http, imap, etc).

How can I help?
