But it's a standard security feature (on Solaris NFS server it was
added around 1996, I think).  Without the match I could set my servers
IP address to be "mail.google.com".  No one should believe me unless
a forward lookup matches.  It is commonly considered "broken" for rDNS
to return a value that doesn't match forward DNS.
