[nsd-users] Remote control a NSD3 server

I'm involved in a project that needs to remote control a NSD server.
Since NSD3 has no remote control functionality and NSD4 will, I see a
few possibilities to accomplish this:
1. Since the project is still in the early stages, simply waiting for
NSD4 to be released is an option. My question in this case is:
* Is there an estimate of when will NSD4 be released? Obviously no
one can commit to a date,
but is the time left before release measured in weeks, months, or
2. Backport the remote control functionality from NSD4 to NSD3. My C is
rusty, but I'm willing to put in the effort. My questions in this case are:
* Is this technically feasible? If remote control is tightly
integrated into NSD4,
it may be futile to try to backport it.
* Does this make sense time-wise? If NSD4 will be released before
backporting is done,
there's no point in backporting.
3. Write my own script that accepts commands over the network, modifies
nsd.conf and/or the zonefiles, and SIGHUPs the NSD daemon. This is the
"default" if 1 and 2 are impossible. It could also be a stopgap measure
until NSD4 is released.
