Would it not still make sense to have lwresd running locally on hosts
that do a lot of DNS (eg. a squid server) but which don't need the full
heavy-weight named?

(assuming that lwresd and squid wouldn't fight for the same CPU and that
a local query would be faster than one over an internal network to a big
DNS cache machine...)
