You say that like DNS isn't flexible enough to handle www at
http://example.com and mail.example.com records on different IPs.  I
have several such installations.  This is pretty off-topic, but it's
worth being right about the technical details if we're going to use
them for the basis of drupal's behavior.

Personally I'm with Freso - I see no point in the www and feel that
the site should silently drop it if a user inserts it (much like
drupal.org does).
