There is no mDNS support in the resolver.  Certain other distributors
implemented a terribly ugly hack which is beyond wrong.  We are not
adding that just to have another check on a list of some people.  If it
is found that mDNS is really useful (which I still am not convinced of)
then we can implement it correctly at some point.
