But, that's not enough. Avahi (and everything done to make it
usable) breaks some stuff on computers on which it doesn't even run.

Best example is broken PPTP (VPN) when the other side is using .local
domain. Then you have to edit /etc/nsswitch.conf and remove all the
mdns stuff.

I'm all for removing avahi. It did me more harm than good.
