I think you're asking too much from a utility that appears to have been
primarily created as a hosts-to-DNS migration tool. Consider taking the
plunge and making DNS your "master" name database. There are numerous
tools out there that can help maintain zonefiles. If you have some broken
software in your environment which (temporarily) *requires* a hosts file,
it should be quite easy to write an "n2h" script which would periodically
generate one from the zonefiles.
