Thanks, I've done a full buildworld/installworld/upgrade onto one of
my laptops and it went flawlessly.

One thing I miss from `host' command is its terseness in the output.

  $ host is an alias for has address mail is handled by 10

`host -v' gives you a similar output as drill does.  Drill does have
-Q(quiet) option, but it's too shy to show me anything no matter what
it finds or not, not even the return code :)
  $ drill -Q; echo $?
  $ drill -Q; echo $?

I can write an alias or a shell function to cope with the verboseness,
but maybe we could modify the behavior of -Q to show something rather
than nothing.
