don't expect to try to explain to my grandma how to type in
2001:45ea:344b:dead:beef::27 and/or remember it, when "printer1" will do.

This just makes me think of this: http://bash.org/?14258

If we need a way to mdns to work across subnet boundries in a single
administrative domain, so be it. If we need a better mdns, lets make that
too, but we *really* need to get away from direct IPs in general.


In IPv6, that should be a relatively simple matter of changing the MDNS
address from starting with ff01 to ff02 or ff04.
