Done. I also added the corresponding AAAA records as our infrastructure
is proudly 100% IPv6 ready :-)

Cool! But, before we go on, I was wondering if we could merge the proxy
and the database together and/or fold the proxy into beamrider to reduce
the number of virtual machines.

It shouldn't detract much from scalability, but it would reduce the
maintenance burden for the VMs by 2/3. There's also 0 security risk,
since both mysql and squid are very secure services.

Also, I feel that the proxy and the database shouldn't run off a crappy
qcow2 file, for performance reasons. As the number of aslo-web
front-ends increases, they will probably perform a lot of disk I/O 

If we decide to keep the current architecture with 3 distinct VMs, we
should at least setup backups for aslo-db and aslo-proxy before we
transition them into production.
