README for addrinfo

This is still a very early version of addrinfo, please don't use it!

I started building addrinfo a couple of years ago because I wanted an IPv6
compatible version of ipcalc or similar tool. I did not find very many at the
time, so I went about building my own, only to lose interest very fast.

In the meantime, there are a bunch of tools that are much more mature and
provide comprehensive IP calculation utilities. For Python, netaddr [1]_ appears
quite proficient. A more comprehensive list can be found under [2]_.

So why am I continuing to build addrinfo? As an academic exercise for myself.
Maybe I will be able to provide more information than other tools, maybe not.
For my plans on what I want to do, please see the TODO file in this project.
