Yeah, that is a tough one.

Hmm, could you do multiple "search subnetX.mydomain.org" lines?

I've never had a need to do this on unix, but it appears Windows can
(though I don't know if these can be set by dhcp server and/or hardcoded
on windows w/ a dhcp address).  Might be something to look into.  Also
would have to crank down the DNS TTL ...

Let us know if you find a solution.
