I’m working from home today, which means I’m connected into work via the corporate PPTP VPN. To drastically oversimplify things, when you’re connected via a VPN, your local network basically “goes away”, for all intents and purposes, unless you manually set up split routing, which is, to be frank, a complete and utter pain in the ass.
What I noticed today, though, is that Bonjour apparently takes care of split-routing .local addresses automagically. Connecting via ssh and afp worked fine to my local, non-VPN machines, and they even showed up in the Finder’s sidebar and iTunes.
I know this isn’t a huge thing, but it’s nice that “the right thing” happens by default.

Jaka: Look, Cerebus— Jaka has to tell you … something
Cerebus: If Cerebus had a navel, would you lick apricot brandy out of it?
Cerebus: You don’t like apricot brandy?
