Exactly. So, when the RR-DNS is implemented, you can't be assured that
the hostname "www.linuxfromscratch.org" will actually contain the user's
home directories. So, we use just linuxfromscratch.org, which will
NEVER be RR-DNS'd, so that hostname will always point to belgarath.
www2 will perform the same thing, and allow someone to bypass the RR-DNS.
