Good suggestions. However, one should be careful to exactly follow
the RFC standards for the actual wire protocols; there have been
some concerns about some "simplifications" in "djbdns" which affected
interoperability. [The IETF mailing list archives circa 2002-2003
should be a rich source of history about some of those controversies.]
