Russ is normally a pleasant fellow, but something about djb acolyte
status unfailingly brings out asshatdom in people.  (I respect Russ for
many reasons, including his having lead the effort that made netqmail a
living project for a while.)

I can no longer find what source had lead me to think dnscache also used
cdb.  (I was aware that tinydns does, and think that's a really good
idea.  Really nice little database, in fact.)

I'd gladly correct that error, but issue #171 went out a long time
ago (Feb. 2012), and nobody bothered to write in prior to the magazine
shutting down, in any event.

But thank you for letting me know, even with gratuitous snide
commentary.  Appreciated.
