RFC 1464 - Using the Domain Name System To Store Arbitrary String Attributes

TXT records associate arbitrary string information (ASCII text) with attributes that have
not been defined by the DNS.  By adding TXT support, Apache DNS can support Sender Policy
Framework (SPF).

Adding a resource record (RR) to Apache DNS involves the following steps:
1) Add a new objectClass and possibly attributeType support to the apachedns.schema for the
new RR type.
2) Add the attributeTypes to the DnsAttribute constants.
3) Write an Encoder that knows how to convert from the RR attributes to the binary resource
data payload in the DNS reply.
4) Add the RR type-to-Encoder mapping to the DnsEncoder's hashed adapter.
5) Add example(s) into the LDIF that ships with the DNS protocol provider.
