That argument, even though it makes sense, seems somewhat inconsistent
with an earlier decision to implement draft-vixie-dnsext-dns0x20-00 in
Unbound. I liked playing with the 0x20 feature though, so at least I for
one was was happy that you implemented it as an option. I suppose I
could be equally happy with fiddling around with DNScurve a bit. A
'--with-dnscurve' configure-option would work just fine for me (will
keep things leand and mean for others). So as far as I am concerned, the
'IETF standardization'-argument doesn't necessarily has to be a
showstopper here.
