Actually, that's not exactly true. The Net::DNS Perl module has Dynamic 
Update routines (with TSIG signing, if desired), so you're not limited 
to using nsupdate. (Admittedly, I still call nsupdate because I haven't 
gotten around to recoding my Dynamic Update core stuff to use Net::DNS).

I have tools like that, unfortunately they are the property of 
DaimlerChrysler and I can't really share them without going through a 
whole lot of bureaucracy. I can provide general guidance and advice, 
however, if you're going to create something from scratch. You can 
contact me off-list if you want.
