[from .cf] [from DNS]
[name of server],    [shell commands everyone knows]

I am an old Unix hack from the 70's. So .cf was "just another
scripting language of expressions" for us.  If I had used

Yea, I am one of those guys that uses the .cf file, not
the .mc file.   Hey... I already bit the bullet. We had no choice. ;-)
