Hey Willem,

A good reason to be proud of yourself, and your hard work!

I'm very curious if our discussion on the API will lead to something;
and am open to further interaction on it of course.

There are boundless languages calling for GetDNS of course ;-) but I
wonder if Go has crossed your mind.  There are so many new languages
that walk up some frivolous aisle but Go seems to crack a lot of hard
nuts that we are now dealing with manually in everyday practice using
C.  I don't mean Garbage Collection, but types like maps, array slices
and coroutines with automatic scheduling and CSP communication channels
hit quite a few sweet spots with me.  You might want to take this one
language seriously, and port GetDNS to it... or use it as your native

(And yes, I understand I'd be welcome to donate.  It's not my place
though; my strengt lies elsewhere.  Which, I understand, may disempower
this suggestion and reduce it to a mere +1 vote.)
