compared to Jed's syntax (to be fair, assume getAddress() etc all
return Option<> type)

     static Option<String> address(Option<InetSocketAddress> sa) {

there isn't much difference in wordiness between the two camps.

but is it *too* strongly typed? Would some people find it annoying
like C++'s const?
