Oh, well that explains that.

Hurm.  Looks like HEAD is where all the exciting hacks are going on.

Oh yeah, I forgot that Unix and Windows had a namespace conflict--they
*both* have technologies entitled Distributed File System.
(DFS...DNS...someone's gotta clue them in on namespace issues ;-)

Can we clarify in the documentation/configure file that we're talking
about Unix-style DFS, and not the (genuinely rather cool) Windows DFS?

Makes sense.  We should specify this in the errors, somehow.
