Ooh.  This looks nice.

A todo item of mine is adding a DNS server to busybox (I did the research a 
long time ago, back before I got involved with busybox, but I was trying to 
write one in python and when I heard about the oak dns server I put it on the 
back burner, then oak was abandoned...  Sigh.)

I'll gladly merge this (possibly after much massaging) after I shovel out from 
my todo pile a bit (which I'm doing this weekend.  I'm going to try to get a 
-pre2 out tomorrow on the theory that next week's could be just as insanely 
busy for me as this past week was).  I'd say this has about a 25% chance of 
making it into -pre2.  (Could happen, don't hold your breath.)

In any case the busybox applet will be called something like "dnsd" on the 
theory that expanding this into a full fledge DNS server is just a matter of

I'd retest it anyway.  I just work that way. :)

Very nice.

Steve Ballmer: Innovation!  Inigo Montoya: You keep using that word.
I do not think it means what you think it means.
