	AFSDB is rather simple.  It's just "AFSDB <type> <host>." where type is 
either 1 or 2 (normally 1 I think - 2 is something to do with DCE).

	I've not seen a specification for SRV entries for AFS.  If it did exist 
it, I suspect it'd be something like "_afs._udp IN SRV <priority> 
<weight> 7003 <host>.", assuming of course you want to locate the vldb; 
but given it's not defined anywhere, that I've seen, it's probable we're 
just waiting for someone to create an offical definition and use it.
