I was hoping to make it easy and have the scripting on the authoritative
server.  Internal machines use the internal recursors as normal, and the
auth server replies with the appropriate data.  External clients hitting
the auth servers would only get the external view.

The data is distinct, there aren't any overlaps..  It's really just a
security by obscurity layer.  In addition to all of the "real" security
layers as well...
