Ah, oops...

You're right of course, we will want to support IPv6, so long probably 
is not the right choice for the hostIP type. In the interim period until 
we have multi-toolkit support for IPv6 probably a char* would be a 
better solution.

However it is highly unlikely that (in the near future) the hostIP in 
the accessibility interfaces will refer to a host that is 
topographically "distant" from the client, for latency reasons.
