Returning 127.0.0.2 on everything would indeed be an ugly way to bow

it was more complicated than that. orbs went away without a clean shutdown
plan, and one of the secondary DNS operators started answering with
127.0.0.2 to try and get people to stop querying his server.

it worked, although with non-trivial pain attached.
