	Hmm.  So, if one of the A RRs for a name has a lower TTL and then 
gets aged out, all the other A RRs for that same name get thrown away 
at the same time?  Interesting.

	I seem to vaguely recall some discussion of this idea, but I 
didn't realize that it had actually been done.  Who knows, maybe I 
actually read it in Cricket's book, and I've just forgotten.  ;-)
