But seriously, there is one small fly in the ointment. This function
apparently returns the IPv4 addresses of the namesevers of interest
to me. But I _need_ the _names_ of those... not their addresses.
Sigh. So close, yet so far.
Well, I guess I'll ned to grab source for this and start hacking together
a personal customized version.
... and THEN, separately, I'll have to get on to the Net::DNS guy, and
find out to what extent, if any, _he_ might also be willing to help me
to realize my Grand Design. (At present, Net::DNS::Resolver does not
appear to implement a res_findzonecut method... let alone a hacked-up

P.S. I'm sitting here looking at:
and I can't for the life of me see hwo to file a bug report or an enhancment
request. But there's got to be a way, because I see 17 pending bug reports.
Does anybody want to give me the clue about how to file a bug report with

ever used in my life just worked.)
