[ldns-users] Dynamic updates using the Resolver module

Hi everyone,

After working with the ldns-update sample and looking over the ldns source I was wondering if there are any issues with using the Net module directly for dynamic DNS updates.  The design page indicates that client applications are supposed to use it through the Resolver module (as per the sample app), but most of the resolver's functionality isn't necessary for updating a single name server. Using resolver also means that a failed update blacklists the name server, which is undesirable in this case.  The other option is to call ldns_resolver_set_rtt(r, LDNS_RESOLV_RTT_MIN) before every send, which is a little kludgy.
