Just to clarify a potential misunderstanding, "mdns_renderer" here stands for Multicast DNS renderer", not "microdns renderer". Loading a module of type mdns_renderer will load either avahi, microdns, or bonjour, depending on the platform and built modules.
As pointed out by Rémi we need to enforce a type of renderer (ie. upnp_renderer VS mdns_renderer) and can't just ask for whichever comes first.
