For Windows versions that support it, we could use GetNameInfoW, available on XPSP2+, W2k3+ and Vista+.

The questions then are: what to do about gethostbyaddr, and what to do about the general case?

Since the problem appears to be specific to Windows, it might be appropriate to find a solution to just the Windows case, and ignore the general issue. For gethostbyaddr, decoding would then use CP_ACP.
