I've talked to Martin Laubach in the mean time, and he offered me a
different patch which I prefer to mine. It removes duplicating work that
's in libc already, and only does the RPC dance to see if the data was
fetched via NIS or not.

If we get hooks from libc to find out where from data came we can get rid
of that, for now, I'll let Martin post his fix here, hoping that people
agree that it's better than my fix. :>
