Ooooh - That's a good enlightenment.

Actually, now I gotta go back and correct
a whole bunch of RDN usage in the documentation
so maybbbe not so gooddd.  Ignorance is bliss :-)

I'll make sure I qualify which RDN I'm talking
about in the documentation then, unless I
specify the relative context.

And since you use "name component" (Which sounds pretty standard)
I'll use that as I'll say rightmost name component...cooooolll.

Thanks Alex,
- Ole
