Dear all,

what about the python script? I'm running multiple instances of unbound
because I need to return different data to diff groups of people and from
my testing the python script will be called after a cache lookup. This
means that if group1 resolves say, which is blocked for group2
by the script (just an example, I know it can be done with local-data
alone), and then group2 comes along they will get the cached ip for and the script will never be called.

Did I misunderstand/misconfigure something or that's the expected behavior?
I'd love to run just one unbound (and share the cache between groups), but
get a chance to alter the cache if needed.
