[Dnsmasq-discuss] can't get multiple domains to work

I didn't because it seemed wrong, generally speaking the last entry for a
given keyword should override former if dups are allowed at all. In any
case I just tried and that's what happened, with


host.better started to resolve and host.good no longer resolved.

that said it's true that the most recent hit on the ML for "multiple
domain" did mention a similar setup with two domain lines altho it had two
diff ranges.
