I think someone mentioned an exclude list as a possible solution to this
What about an include list instead (or in addition to the exclude list)?
I'm envisioning something like CellServDB, but without the actual DB info
-- that is effectively a list of robust and/or often-used cells for which
you're willing to look up AFSDB/SRV records?
If neither file exists, revert to the current operation.
Just an idea...
PS. Forgive me if someone mentioned that and I overlooked it. While I read
all the messages in the thread, I'm often interrupted by work...
