... except that on any vageuly modern system, you can make DNS override
/etc/hosts if you really want to, but you can't make AFS ignore the
CellServDB in favor of looking up AFSDB records. I don't expect this ever
to change -- if you want to look up dbservers for a cell dynamically, don't
include that cell in the CellServDB.
