I don't see a more reasonable option at this point. We simply can't use
the getaddrinfo() call on this platform. If we really wanted to refine
it, we could start searching for _ i the name before we looked it up,
but then we really do get down special-case codepaths.
As we have (and have to use) our a 'direct' DNS client lib for SRV
records anyway, it's isn't really a major issue, it just means names
in /etc/hosts won't be considered.
