I did some work on prototyping this a couple weeks ago, and got a Python DNS server working. If anybody else is excited about this, let me know. Otherwise I'll finish it sometime...

    1 One option for fixing #1176 would be for the load balancing infrastructure to automatically preferentially send you to your preferred dialup. (Another the wrapper script approach from comment:3:ticket:1176, seems more annoying for users.)

    33AIUI, given the way ssh and the dialups work right now, we could easily do this by having a DNS server that handled username.ist-dialup.sipb.org or so and maintained a persistent mapping of username -> dialup. Ideally, we could convince IS&T to take and maintain this, but SIPB running such a service would be a useful second choice. In any case, Jon suggests that prototyping such a service is a good first step.
