and debugging a DNS module when dependencies don't effect the way 99% of people would install
the libcloud package? Even after the drawn out anti-zope.interface argument, I still don't
get it. If a module is well-tested, stable, and available via the cheese shop, there's no
downside to using it (from my perspective, anyway).

Indeed, I took a look at implementing TXT lookups and it's non-trivial.

As for Zope, it didn't seem like it was bringing much value.
