inet_ntop has been introduced by RFC 2553/3493 (Basic socket interface
extensions for IPv6) that's true, but the main difference of this
function is not that it supports IPv6 but that it is thread safe.
inet_ntoa writes into a global buffer and if another thread calls the
same function your result is overwritten.

But your idea isn't that bad. You get support for this function in
cygwin if you install an IPv6 enabled version of it. This is available
at http://win6.jp/Cygwin/.
