Hhm, okay, I see ;-) 

just from memory:
The first author (Bruno, now travelling the world) of the nameservice plugin 
had 2 basic types, that the plugin announced:
- I am a DNS server (use me for lookup)
- My host name ist this xxx

There was also already another type defined, but not implemented:
- I do offer this kind of service to the network (string with a certain 
format, which can be parsed e.g. by a script)

This latter type is now implemented by the patch (there should also be 1 or 2 
bug fixes for the old code in there as well).

If there are still some lines of code that puzzle you, let me know. Maybe I 
can help.
