  This should be pretty easy.  I think the way to go about it would be to
subclass t.names.client.Resolver and override lookupMailExchange(),
returning the central relay address instead for the affected domains, and
deferring (english meaning) to the parent implementation of the method for
everyone else.

  It refers to the API stability -- meaning the modules haven't reached a
point where the developers are confident that no further changes which break
user code relyong on the module will be made.  It doesn't reflect on how
well the code actually works.
