Comment (by arma):

 I think we should make this function return yes for every string that is a
 legit destination address -- that is, something that is ok to send in a
 relay begin cell. (Does that make #25055 a duplicate of this ticket?)

 Speaking of unit tests, it might also be smart to test using socks4a with
 an ipv6 address as the provided destination name -- I would expect it to
 work, but based on this ticket I bet it currently doesn't.

 I suspect socks4-with-ipv6 has been broken the whole time too.
