True. I've been eyeing those servers for a while now. I believe the
correct fix (rather than trying to hunt down the operator(s)) is to put
in the patch that's been on the TODO for a while, to treat nodes in the
same /16 as in the same family, even if they don't explicitly volunteer
that information.

Hopefully that will be in rsn, depending on when we get time to actually
do dev work. :}
