Ack. I really hope you meant to say " we hope to have a version of
bind9 out that will not require threads, but will basically use
callbacks to an application-provided select() or poll() loop".
The key issue being, who owns the event loop? Can one integrate the
bind9 action routines into an existing event-driven app (ala X11)?
The point about writing and contributing is well taken, of course.
