You example, doesn't show "j"whois. But you're right. It doesn't work for
.nu. It did work for my corenic-based

I made a pkgsrc out of the whois (Marco d'Itri) used by Debian. I called
it md-whois. It is available at (I ran
pkglint on it but it came up with some weird messages like "FATAL: no
MAINTAINER listed in Makefile" even though it is there.)

Another whois that works is a shell-based whois wrapper. I grabbed it from Interesting. Maybe Mr. Woods
would be interested in packaging it (or reimplementing his ideas).
