Multilingual domain system

NeDNS is a patched version of BIND 8.2.2p5. The zone file handling and configuration is therefore slightly different. Two additional functions (to automatically convert incoming strings (RENAME) and the resolution of ACE names) are introduced. RENAME essentially glues any multilingual requests to its corresponding ACE formatted name by setting a dynamic alias (CNAME) between the multilingual name to an alphanumeric conversion. There upon, BIND servers will be able to resolve the names accordingly.
