let me state up front that I'm not in a position to dive into this seriously yet 
but I have an distributed application were I am considering using an rbl like 
DNS lookup.  Obviously, I could write my own UDP client/server but I would 
prefer to recycle existing tools whenever possible.  I have come to count on 
dnsmasq as one of my "highly trusted" DNS tools and I'm interested to see if 
it's reasonably practical to stretch it just a little bit further to use either 
a program or a DBM file to translate requests into responses.

Thanks for supplying a tool I don't have to worry about.


PS, I'm currently using dnsmasq to handle DNS and DHCP for vmware servers.  It's 
really nice to be able to control IP addresses in one spot (on the host machine) 
and make everything a nicely self-contained unit.  when I have the cycles, I'm 
planning on experimenting with dnsmasq to also allocate IP addresses for the 
virtual network feature of VM Ware.  Their DHCP server is really primitive and 
not at all connected to the DNS tool.

Speech-recognition in use.  It makes mistakes, I correct some.
