Comment (by pulkomandy):

 Support for this is available in libbind in inet_aton, but not in
 inet_pton which is the multi-protocol (ie. ipv6 aware) version. This makes
 sense, since the class notation is deprecated and was replaced by network
 masks which are more flexible.

 However, getaddrinfo should handle both IPv6 (it does) and old IPv4 class
 notation. I'm not sure if it does currently.
