I'll take a look at that. It might be a good idea to make it modular, if
it isn't already modular, so that people could create "plugins" that
work with other databases. Personally, I'm going to see how much work is
involved in porting the code to MySQL, since I don't use Postgres.
 I imagine the chances are good that it's already modular, but I
haven't really had a chance to look at Bind 9 yet. I have to get it
installed on a development box and do a little testing before I am
comfortable enough to do anything with it.
