Actually I didn't realise how important those supersede commands were, but
without them, the clients on my network won't resolve the actual dnsmasq 

The windows machine kept resolving the hostname isengard (name of the dnsm
machine) to! Pretty confusing, and nslookup on the windows machi
said something about non-existent domains and PTR records. 

Anyway, all ship shape now.
