You're right. nodelist_add_node_and_family() considers two relays to be
in the same family when they both claim that the other relay is in their
family, regardless of what the set of relays in the two MyFamily
settings look like.

In this particular case, DFRI's relays do have distinct contact info.

If you do take this into account, I don't understand why a line like the
followin would appear in your list. But maybe you didn't for this list?
