[IDD #TNF-892711]: idd.cise-nsf.gov connectivity marginal

OK.  Since I typically send the fully qualified name and IP address of
LDM nodes to the system administrator I am asking for action, I think that
it would be best to wait until the machines are moved to the new subnet
before pressing for the change at the WOC.  (There are all new people
there, and getting them to do something and then changing it shortly after
would likely cause more confusion than is desired.)

Very good.  This fits with my sense of symmetry: I would really like for
all toplevel IDD relay nodes to be named idd.xxx.yyy.edu.

Please let us know when the subnet switch has been made.
