I disagree.  There are lots more databases that need to be configured
than just hosts...

I believe that a nsswitch.conf-like mechanism where the adminstrator
can select the type (file, dns, yp, hesiod, etc.) and resolution order
of database services for passwd, group, hosts, networks, protocols,
rpc, ethers, etc. would be a good thing.
