There isn't a way to disable it without patching.
Maybe we should look at a solution for 0.15 that doesn't require
configuration. One approach might be to resolve both ways at the same time
and take the first that succeeds. This should only give you a problem if the
hostname exists both on the local network and in normal DNS at the same time.
Unless anyone thinks that's a ridiculous idea?
