Is this patch in response to an actual problem, or a theoretical problem?
If "actual problem": what was the specific application, and what was the specific host name?

If theoretical, I recommend to close it as "won't fix". I find it perfectly reasonable if Python's socket module gives an error if the hostname can't be clearly decoded. Applications that run into it as a result of gethostbyaddr should treat that as "no reverse name available".
