About a year ago, I posted a message,

>Hi, I have been working on an asynchronous patch to -llwres.
>We are using this in the experimental (DNSSEC-aware) branch of FreeSWAN.
>(USE_LWRES=true in the top-level Makefile.inc). The 2.03 release, coming

>Our mechanism is that we send all DNS requests down a pipe to a program,

>The patch is at http://www.sandelman.ca/tmp/lwres.patch
>The patch is slightly edited diff output - I would up with lots of
>$Id$ differences, which are annoying.
I don't recall getting any feedback.
