Hmm? I am not sure why you might want to do this. You can safely
install multiple services via mod_dnssd that use different URLs on the
same host name.
If you want to define aliases for hostnames (i.e. CNAMES), than you
can easily write a program in python that registers those.
I'd also be happy to accept a patch for avahi proper that adds a file
/etc/avahi/aliases akin to /etc/avahi/hosts but only for defining
CNAME aliases for the local host.
