Simply stating that there's a better way without Sending Code is a copout.
I realize I'm dragging this on, and I apologize, but:
It's totally valid to report a problem that affects the operations
community without providing a fix. Knowledge of the fact that a problem
exists is valuable, even without a cookbook resolution.
In this case, a few people (some not on this list) would like the
operations community to realize that there are, in fact, some very doable
attacks that remain unaddressed by BIND 8.1.1.
Yes, reporting a problem you can't personally fix is acceptable.
Casting asparagus upon the design of code other people have written
because it has those problems, however, is another matter. Given that
the author thereof is known to be on the list, it's tantamount to a
personal attack... which is off-topic, per point 6 of the AUP. :-)
My turn: this is off-topic. Please move it to bind-workers, or some
other acceptable forum. (I don't mean you, Paul, I mean Messrs. Black
