Exactly, especially in IPv4 round robin using DNS is a a de-facto
standard, and changing this behavior in libc6 is just *stupid* - sorry,
but I have no other words for that. Imho Debian's ctte should decide
about this, and if they decide to have sorted IPv4 addresses by default,
somebody needs to take care that _ALL_ programs using IPv4 are changed.
Including browsers, IM clients and all daemons which usually connect to
addresses outside of the own computer.
