So, what does a dnsproxy approach accomplish, that can't be achieved 
with less processes, and less listening ports/addresses, by BIND's 
"view" feature? You can have one view for recursive resolution, and 
another view that's only authoritative data, with no recursion at all, 
and select the view depending on the client source address. This is, in 
fact, how many folks (including us) run their Internet-facing 
nameservers these days.

Perhaps this is why the dnsproxy code hasn't been updated in over 4 
years. It would appear to be obsolete.
