darcs patch: Implementation of aton and ntoa outside the IO monad

Erk, I just realised this patch is completely wrong since the
HostAddress will be totally different depending on the endianness of the
platform. I'm looking into writing some utilities for handling
endianness etc since it would be nice to be able to do I/O with raw
bytes in haskell. In the meantime, please ignore this patch.
