G'Day Richard,

We are putting in Ralph's patches, the patches to update the NS record,
and we are looking to catch up all the other DNS patches that have not
gone in already. 

Can you get us your current patches?

In this patch it looks OK as a first attempt, but it would need to be
tidied up to:
 - use correct name in Usage:
 - remove unused variables
 - spell comments correctly 
 - not write to /tmp/$$
 - call net ads dns unregister

And include the patch of net ads dns unregister of course.
