Re: mirage + ocaml4

convenience - i think the other place they were defined was ocaml-re which 
meant pulling in that lib just to get ipv[46] addresses, probably particularly 
for ocaml-dns which was one of the earlier network libs to be pulled out of the 
monolithic tree.

(istr a discussion at the time about pulling the network stack apart more 
generally so that one might include rather more selectively things like address 
types. but it was pushed down the stack so to speak :)
