#ifndef __SCAMPER_ADDR_H
#define __SCAMPER_ADDR_H

 * the scamper_addr code has a number of purposes:
 * first, it provides a way to record different address types in the same
 * structure regardless of the operating system scamper is used on.
 * second, it provides a way to reference count the addresses contained, so
 * that users of addresses do not have to allocate copies of the address
 * each time they use the address internally.
 * third, it can provide a 'cache' of addresses so that only one copy of
 * the address needs to be kept among all users of scamper_addr.

 * these are the types of addresses that scamper understands
#define SCAMPER_ADDR_TYPE_IPV4     0x01 /* 32 bit IPv4 address */
#define SCAMPER_ADDR_TYPE_IPV6     0x02 /* 128 bit IPv6 address */
#define SCAMPER_ADDR_TYPE_ETHERNET 0x03 /* 48 bit ethernet mac address */
#define SCAMPER_ADDR_TYPE_FIREWIRE 0x04 /* 64 bit firewire link address */

 * scamper_addr:
 * this structure is used to store an address in scamper.
 * the contents of this will eventually be made private, so users of
 * addresses should not count on the contents of the struct remaining
 * public.
typedef struct scamper_addr
  int   type;
  void *addr;
  int   refcnt;
  void *internal;
} scamper_addr_t;

 * scamper_addr_alloc:
 *  allocate an address of the specified type; the reference count of the
 *  address is initialised to one
 * scamper_addr_use:
 *  increment the reference count by one, and return a reference to the
 *  address passed in as a convenience.
 * scamper_addr_free:
 *  decrement the reference count held on the address.  when the reference
 *  count becomes zero, the address is freed.
 * scamper_addr_resolve:
 *  attempt to resolve the string as getaddrinfo would, and return the address

 * scamper_addr_alloc_[ipv4|ipv6|ethernet|firewire]
 * these macros are provided as a convenience as the type constants can
 * become unwieldy to use

 * scamper_addr_cmp:
 *  given two addresses, return their sort order.

 *  given a scamper address, convert it to a string representation in the
 *  buffer of specified size.

 * scamper_addr_size
 *  return the size of the underlying address stored in the scamper_addr
 *  structure.  useful for writing address objects to disk...
size_t scamper_addr_size(const scamper_addr_t *sa);

 * scamper_addrcache:
 *  store identical addresses just once in this structure
 * scamper_addrcache_alloc:
 *  allocate an empty address cache and return a pointer to it
 * scamper_addrcache_free:
 *  free the address cache structure.  all addresses have their reference
 *  count decremented; if their reference count is zero, the underlying
 *  address is freed as well.

 *  out of the cache; allocate the address from scratch if necessary
