 Can we get the function gethostbyaddr or 
gethostbyip to accept a second value. 
that second value would be that of what DNS server 
to query to get the information. 
If second value is NULL, then use the systems 
resolv library.

While PHP relies on libc implementations of these functions, it's not practical to consider this as there's no reasonably portable way to do it.

Since PHP has been relying on libc implementations of these functions forever, there's no reason to expect this to change.
