Ah okay.  I suppose that passes the buck to network-dns.  Presumably it 
could be fixed fairly simply by requiring binary < 0.5 (as you 
suggested).  Ideally, though, the implementation of its infinite random 
list would be changed.  This would avoid having a dependency on a 
package which is no longer current.
