Asheesh, I've written _lectures_ about Name Service Switch.  ;-> [1]

Although I'm aware of the existence of Avahi and other Zeroconf /
Rendezvous / Bonjour multicast-DNS resource-discovery implementations 
(mDNSResponder/Howl/libhowl as designed by both Debian and Apple's Scott
Herscher, Novell's Mono-based -- yuck! -- mDnsResponder.Net, Mezcallo's
mod_dnsd for Apache httpd 2.x, Jeremie's mdnsd, Eric Fitchett's
Java-based MCastDiscovery, Dox Discovery, Multicast DNS Service
Discovery for Python, Eric Ries's Zerospan, Brad Hards and Zhendong's
zcip, tmdns, GNOME's gmdns, the KDE kdnssd ioslave, the KDElibs' kdnssd,
and so on), I have not yet tested those for Linux deployments -- so
you'll forgive me if I favour old-fogy solutions like pseudo-static IP
assignments in nameservers.  ;->

Gee willikers and by gum!  It's indeed keen being so wholesome, isn't it?  ;->
