Yeah, it's a bit of a mess, but we tried our best to communicate this 
(this is also why 2.1.x was "unstable" :). Fwiw, this is also why I 
implemented that little perl module that lets you script the updates to 
a records.config file. There's one example using it for setting up a 
forward proxy, in the source tree at 
contrib/perl/ConfigMgmt/examples/ In the interest of 
showing what I do on my "CDN", I'm also attaching the script I use to 
configure my reverse proxy.

I highly recommend using a script similar to this for keeping your 
configs up to date. This way, if we change something in records.config 
(not likely in the 3.0.x release, but could certainly happen on trunk 
and 3.1.x/3.2.0), you can keep your config file up to date.
