that is _NOT_ what a CNAME is for. a CNAME is for when the hostname is
in a domain that is OUTSIDE of your control.
ie: evil.debian.org -> www.msn.com = CNAME (we don't control the msn.com
forge.debian.org -> quantz.debian.org = A (we control the debian.org
domain, so we can save the internet by REDUCING THE NUMBER OF
UNNECESSARY DNS LOOKUPS AND REDUCE THE END USERS DELAY WITH DNS LOOKUP
isn't this a FAQ somewhere?
