Just for giggles, has anyone thought about making this a cache DNS rather
than a forced lookup, don't lookup deal? 

Excluding the cpu cost of doing a dns lookup, I don't see a reason why 
someone wouldn't want a dns name rather the ip.  ( assuming they want
some dns in the first place). 

We use it just to see the percentages between us and foreign hits.
