I had this code in libwww for a long time as part of the URL
canonicalization algorithm. However, resolving names in your own domain
mostly gives you the local address and there was no way that I could get a
cross-platform implementation reliably finding it's own domain name.
Factors like NIS and badly configured domains makes this impossible in
practise so I had to disable it. Sad, huh?
