Jeremy McLeod <firstname.lastname@example.org> seems to have accidentally omitted
the list in his follow-up (and failed to remove the list-tag from the
Subject header), so I've corrected that oversight.

1. Good for you.
2. It's possible if not likely that your definition of "properly"
differs radically from mine. See also:

Correct, you aren't. Because you didn't bother to follow the provided
hyperlink. Once again: http://linuxmafia.com/~rick/faq/#djb

Take the trouble to read the cited text (at the URL furnished) before
speaking in ignorance, please.
> ...DJB's software acceptably standards compliant....
Aw, now that's fscking _ridiculous_. No IETF Notify (without a
third-party patch), no AXFR, no A6, no DNSSEC, no TSIG, no Dynamic DNS
-- and that's just djbdns.
We won't even get into EPLF being the sole output format supported by
Publicfile (and anonftpd before it) in its capacity as an ftp daemon.
See: http://crackmonkey.org/faq.html#ANSWER23 (off-line at the moment,
because of Northpoint troubles).
