I don't know any project implementing LLMNR outside of Windows. It's clearly
dead in terms of further adoption and mDNS has won. So I don't think we need
to provide it for cross-platform interoperability. I'd say we provide mDNS for
that. In addition, we may provide some other IoT protocols currently in
In any case, the gist of this discussion is that neither the module nor the
library should be called "zeroconf", if they provide more functionality.
