Unless there is any objection, I'm going to remove the "Recursion not

the output (even completely aside from the Default-worthiness of it).
I agree that this is a good idea. I'd prefer most scripts to not
output anything on failure. In this case, it isn't failure as much as
it is the "take no action" state.
3/7 isn't bad, so I think it is still OK for Default with the above
removed. What do you guys think?
So I have a question about shortport from the script:
portrule = shortport.portnumber(53, "udp")
Is shortport for UDP == "open" or is it == "open|filtered"? The docs
don't say and I haven't dug into the code.
If it is "open|filtered" we shouldn't include it by default. If it is
"open" I think we should. I suppose that would most likely require -sV
to have determined the port is open but that shouldn't be that big a
The script output is valuable enough that I'd like it to run by default
if port 53 has already been flagged as open.
