ok i didn't look into the code so i don't know (just ask the authors), 
but for me it seems there are many overlapping code in these projects 
(dnssec, resolver, lookup etc). now it seems there are 3 separate 
project nsd, unbound and ldns which have many common part (eg: drill, 
unbound-host) and still have different source. at least a common lib 
makes me happy:-)
just a very quick look:

ps. just a small note as i already ask it
none of them has dynamic update:-(
