It may not be an issue for too long. All that is required is for someone to
create software that solves the same problems as the DJB software. I belive
there is a qmail clone under the GPL and I am looking at a tinydns replacement.
There is no doubt we need government in our lives. There is also no doubt
that we need salt in our diet. Watch out for too much of either one.
