Ah, I see - the 'tli' versus 'ether' thing is just a different
way of encoding the host address and port.  I was thinking it was
something more profound like a different wire protocol.

OK, I'll see if I can change the whole file to use 'ether'.  But
won't this break dblib applications on Solaris, since on that
platform dblib needs to see the TLI format?

It looks like I'll need to generate two different interfaces
files for the two platforms, if I want to support dblib on both.
