True, but I think an additional layer may simplify the task.
Some time ago, I wrote a possible implementation of this and was discussed
on this list. After the discussion it wasn't included in gnome-libs

- my implementation depends on gnome-dns which is currently deprecated and
  should be rethought/rewritten (maybe with a single, per-user dns
  resolver daemon)
- it's low level stuff and maybe glib is a better place for it
- I currently have no time to make it thread-safe and port it to Win32,
  and I think that would be necessary for it to be included in glib
