Hmm, no discussion of this one before committing?

These options are already the defaults. What's the point of uncommenting

No, these are *not* safe options; they should almost *never* be tampered
with, and almost anyone who touches them doesn't know what they're doing.
Please do not include these as examples, they're just examples of how to
break your network.

These are ok as examples, but again I don't see any reason to have an
uncommented 'domain master' option that duplicates the compiled-in default.
I also think we ought to be distinguishing between "this is a default value
that you may want to uncomment and change to something else" and "this is a
non-default value which you may want to uncomment under specific
circumstances". That's a separate wishlist bug, though, as we haven't done
this consistently for existing examples either.
Steve Langasek Give me a lever long enough and a Free OS
Debian Developer to set it on, and I can move the world.
