Yep - I want existing standard stuff, but the devil we know seems to
swamp the spectrum with 802.11s.

Googling leads to a paper that could be useful. I don't have access -
but they seem to claim that they can get DNS-SD to _not_ mess the mesh
up with some new technique requiring new and adventurous patches
affecting the mesh routing nodes:

I don't want adventure. I want something old and safe ;-)

Maybe we can fake this with good old DNS lookups - but those will fail
if the DNS server has a wildcard (like commercial hotspots do).

DNS lookup + http check? Why do the ugliest solutions end up being the
ones that work in the field?

cheers,
