I don't presume to speak for the NSD developers, but I know that NSD4 is
in a good state. I have been testing the beta releases, and am quite
satisfied with them. I know some sites are even using it on production
servers. I suspect and hope that there will be a proper release real
soon now.

If I were you, I'd just write some scripts to work with NSD3 for now,
and upgrade to NSD4 when it comes out. Don't waste effort back-porting
NSD4's remote control into NSD3. It will be more work than you might
