As I posted previously, This is more the job of a resolver class and could
also be layered on top of this address class as a resolvable_address.

There as sufficent occasions when you know that a DNS lookup is not
required to warrant supporting efficient construction of an address.

I like using DNS names in applications that I write and so a good resolver
class will also be needed.

I think a general purpose address class should store the arguments
required to look up an address using "getaddrinfo". This means
1) It sould store a service name instead of the port.
2) It should also contain an addrinfo containing the hints.
The getaddrinfo could then be wrapped in two classes address_info_list
and address_info.
