Detailed Description

Socket address structure.

The first member is big enough to contain addresses of any family. The second member contains the length (in bytes) used in the first member.

Some BSDs have the length embedded in sockaddr structs. We ignore them. (This is the right thing to do.)
It is important to always initialize ast_sockaddr before use – even if they are passed to ast_sockaddr_copy() as the underlying storage could be bigger than what ends up being copied – leaving part of the data unitialized.
