"reachability"?  Whiskey Tango Foxtrot?  I'd love to hear the backstory 
on that name choice.  It has the scent of things like "srcBic", adopted 
from the arbitrary choices of neckbeards who define OS APIs.  Maybe 
there's an API for iOS called NSReachabilityChanged.

If nothing else it's perhaps the most truly English-like token in the 
language, steeped as it is in vague ambiguity just like so much in 
natural languages. ;)

And iOS only?  What do we do for the other 80% of the world?
