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.
