Hi Scott,

Thanks for the pointers and your work.  Both patches look good (I 
thought a bit about the first, whether we should use ntohl or ntohs 
but it seems OK) and I've committed them to CVS HEAD.

However, given that there haven't been any other changes since 1.0, 
I'd be inclined to wait until RDNSS support is being integrated into 
Linux kernel or some other major OSs before going further.
