apparently not.  i have yet to be impressed by the depth of understanding
of security in general or of dns in particular shown on the bugtraq list.
that list has a lot of hanger-on wanna-be fear-uncertainty-doubt types and
the folks who actually have a clue seem to mostly just lurk.

i am still waiting for a demonstration of this bug, with or without a patch.
