This was the final straw that recently got his stuff kicked out of
OpenBSD, if memory serves.

Yes, MaraDNS is quite useful.  And if you mean you're now packaging it
for Debian, my thanks.

"Is it not the beauty of an asynchronous form of discussion that one can go and 
make cups of tea, floss the cat, fluff the geraniums, open the kitchen window

the vexed glowing letters calmer of mind and soul?" -- The Cube, forum3000.org
