	IIRC, it doesn't hand out referrals when asked questions outside 
of the zones it is authoritative for.  This means that it violates 
the DNS protocols, among other things.

	It also doesn't handle IPv6, TSIG, or any of the other advanced 
features of the DNS.

	In short, I do not consider it to be a viable replacement for 
BIND, not even for the simplest of possible tasks.
