Well, I see part of the problem which is that if postfix does use
getnameinfo(), it can only get 1 of the PTR records. The supposedly
superior getnameinfo() can only return a single entry.

Thank you for making my life hell!
Postfix's sense of order may be philosophically correct, but it is not
consistent with the RFCs, so postfix is wrong. It is also counter
to the well established design philosophy, be liberal in what you accept.
Note: I agree that a single PTR record is better. My opinion is
I don't know why you would thank Wietse when there is no disadvantage
to accepting multiple PTR records. There is only a downside.
