Description episource 2017-01-27 19:54:18 CET
Currently, it's not possible to use multiple instances of the python module. Actually, adding the word `python` to the `module-config:` option several times is not rejected by unbound. In the end, however, it's not a useable setup supported by unbound.

It happened to be quiet simple to prepare the python module for multiple instance support. @github I've prepared a feature branch proposing a possible solution. Please have a look at: https://github.com/episource/unbound/tree/dev/pythonmod-multi-instance/main

The proposed solution allows to reference the python module more than once within `module-config:` option. For each instance, a `python-script:` option needs to be added to the `python:` section, specifying the python script file to be used. The first python module picks up the first `python-script:` option, the second picks up the second script, and so on.

Hi episource,

We are willing to merge your code to unbound's source.
Currently we are releasing 1.7.1, so this code after internal review will be headed for the next release (probably 1.7.2).

Thanks for the contribution!

Best regards,
