I have not used Avahi before (zeroconf for Linux), but have used
zeroconf on OS X (apple invented it).  At least on OS X, it is quite
robust and used throughout Apple's products for autodiscovery.  I
can't vouch for the quality of Avahi's implementation, but I think the
idea itself of using dynamic DNS in this manner is reasonably well
