	Ah, no :) Boost is one thing that I try to avoid. I'm actually more of 
a "C" guy that "C++" and zmq has been nice to have first and foremost 
"C" interface, even if written in "C++".
	I was more thinking of the second solution:
	"From the winsock layer: WSAAddressToString (ntop) and 
WSAStringToAddress (pton)", although there is a comment from someone: 
"Note that WSAAddressToString will append the port number as well if 
your address structure has one. So to just get the IP, you may have to 
create a new address with no port. "

	But for now I'm sticking to the change before Ian Barber's one (which 
seems very cool indeed, but unfortunately relying on something that XP 
does not support).

	There might be somewher "inet_ntop.c" compat layer for XP (probably 
part of mingw/cygwin), but I haven't started digging yet.
