Actually, I did a version of that logic for 4.9.3BETA17, and I seem to
recall Vixie saying it would be included in the next version (ie
something after 4.9.3BETA17), I've not yet checked whether this
actually happened.  I've been using the lookup files,bind stuff in
resolv.conf on SunOS machines for quite a while - no complaints.

Of course, I like the nsswitch stuff too.
