Re: NSEC Enumeration script

Thanks for testing it and for this new patch. I tried it, but I hit an
infinite loop on the very last name. I think it's because the last NSEC
record points backwards to the first name in the subzone. In r22589 I
changed get_next_nsec to look for an NSEC record that brackets a given
domain name, with the dname on the left and name on the right. It works
for me, but please give it a try.
sure will give things a test this evening

A quick glance at the dnssec_query function suggest that it shares a lot
of code with the query function. It could make sense to extend that
function to handle dnssec. It would probably involve adding an value to
the option parameter. Also, in my opinion, the code should be changed so
that it returns the status as the first return value, rather than how it's
being done at the moment.
yes most of dnssec_query is a copy of an old version of the query
function, so it would be good to merge everything pack

In essence, I think that the following change should be performed:
- return rPkt.dnssec,true, rPkt
+ return true, rPkt

This way it's more standardized and does not return redundant information.
 rPkt.dnssec is redundant if you are using the raw packet but if you
just want an answer then rPkt.dnssec could be usefull. what should the
library return if the query is successful but there is no dnssec?
