Bug#281815: glibc: Please change cryptic error message: "Servname not supported for ai_socktype"

Package: glibc
Severity: wishlist

It is nearly impossible for an user to understand what the hell "Servname
not supported for ai_socktype" means.  Please at least change that to
"Socket service name unknown", or something else that makes sense to someone
who DOES NOT write Unix socket code...
