Someone (I think Dean Gaudet) wrote code that does both hostname resolution
and IDENTD username queries asychronously as a seperate process (the server
fork()s every time a query comes in).  He posted it to
about 2 years ago.. I've always meant to add that to Circle but haven't
gotten around to it yet.  I still have his post if anyone's interested.
