I have a long-term goal of providing nss_nis.so to allow us to remove the YP methods from libc.so if we desire. nss_nis.o would still ship in the base system. Arguably the same could be done with Hesiod support moving into nss_dns.so; I'd possibly still keep the "hosts: dns" code still in libc.so. | After all, nss makes these things easy to supply without messing with | the defaults, right? That's the theory, yes. Well, nsswitch and PAM. cheers, Luke.
