I've been looking into setting up Hesiod but I have not found any
tools to make it easier to transition from local files or NIS to
Hesiod.  So, I wrote a quick one.  It just uses getpwent(3) and
friends to output appropriate DNS RRs for Hesiod.  Currently, it
outputs the domains (usage?) passwd, uid, group, gid, grplist, and
shells.  Unfortunately, I also couldn't find any documentation at
all about Hesiod so it is likely that I made a mistake or two. :-)
Anyway, I put the src up at:

and would appreciate comments from someone who is familiar with
the appropriate usage of Hesiod.  If you have references to online
documentation, that would be _excellent_.
