Address Sorting NOT in V8

Version 4 of BIND contained a very useful tool
called address sorting.  This was great for
multihomed hosts - you look up a name, and you'd
get back the network address of the network you
were on.  If you weren't on any of networks the
multihomed host was, then BIND roundrobined.

For some reason, they have apparently left this
feature out of V8.  Does anyone know why?  Is
there a way to turn it back on?

This is really killing our network performance
since the multihomed hosts don't always have the
same size pipe on each interface.
