Yeah, a new function was a thought that had crossed my mind as well.  getfqdnbyname, maybe?  Or gethostnamefqdn?  Then deprecate calling getfqdn without an argument.

I agree that gethostbyaddr accepting a non-IP is weird.  I have no idea why it was implemented that way, much less why it is *used* that way.  It's been that way for a long time, though.
