can you define what you mean by "quite well" here?  i know that nobody ever
got fired for buying it, and some folks got fired for not buying it.  but
it doesn't rule out the need for at least one well connected high capacity
server, and once you have that server, what problems do you still have, that
are amenable to DNS-based GSLB ("stupid DNS tricks"), where the cost of
having those problems is higher than the cost of solving them?
