Serhiy: your patch still changes the type of exception, for 

s.sendto(b'hello',(u'thisisaverylongstringthisisaverylongstringthisisaverylongstringthisisaverylongstring', 4242))

You get a UnicodeError now, but a socket.gaierror then. This is because the name encodes fine as ascii, but still violates the IDNA requirement on label length. My patch does the same. I don't see where your and my patch differ in behavior.

But I agree that your patch is certainly much simpler, while mine might be slightly faster (for not creating copies of the host name).

I'm fine with either being applied. Antoine?
