That is a good point.  I hadn't considered it, but this patch does
change the semantics when --enable-obsolete-nsl is used.  I  guess the
question is: do we think that is OK and just need to document the
changes or do we need to ifdef the code changes so that when --enable-
obsolete-nsl is used, we get the existing behavour.  I am inclined to 
ifdef the code to preserve the current behavour under the enable
option.
