    This message is to announce a new Python module, Constrict, which is
    useful for examining DNS messages that you receive either from a network
    capture or from a socket. While other DNS-related Python projects
    exist, none provide flexible message parsing and inspection.

    Constrict is BIND for Python: it is a Python library for parsing DNS
    messages using ISC's libbind. Constrict allows you to see DNS messages
    in two ways:

    * Direct access to the libbind parsing functions
    * A Python object with various meaningful attributes

    This software is available under the GNU General Public License, version
    2.

    This is the initial release. Constrict evolved from an internal project
    development, so it has already seen much real-world testing. The
    wrapper to the BIND C API is thorough enough for most development, and
    the object-oriented view is quite intuitive for day-to-day queries and
    responses.

    Constrict is known to work with Python 2.3 and BIND 9 on Linux/i386 and
    Linux/ppc.
