Scratch that -- my brain was thinking 'concurrent' at the wrong level.
Yes, we could give back a handle on a particular address info result
and use that to keep multiple concurrent retrievals from within the
image happy; the client would have to explicitly destroy the handle
when done to free up the result. Since this was not the simplest
thing that would make OLPC happy, I didn't do it.
