DNS-SD comes with a feature [0]. However the problem is, that the code
is still on git. Initially we planed to do the 3.4 release from git, so
I never cared to check the code into CVS (didn't want to loose history
either).
Now that we've postponed the move to git (again), I'm not sure I have
the resources to move the code to CVS. Especially in front of the fact
that we will move the code back to git afterwards.

DNS-SD requires an authoritive DNS server setup, which makes a setup
slightly more complicated than just including a new launch config.
