Sure.  Patch welcome.  Retrofit the ip.c deferred lookup changes in
main.c so that they occur during findslot.c and queue.c.  See the
function ip_lookup().  Or do the host name lookup in the queue hosts
command, delaying the player who wants the information.  I'm inclined
toward the latter.

On the positive side, the change has cut the time to connect and login
from an IP address that has no reverse name available.  It is most
noticeable when comparing a connection to pickled against a connection
to continuum.
