User wanting to use a .local domain to host DNS

It is? I always see localhost.localdomain when it's spelled out completely. I've never seen anything .localhost (and then my guess is that if it is, it's not meant to be used except for one host by itself).

Thanks for the catch--guess I was writing a little too quickly this
