Bind offers the cool feature of being able to list all records on a name 

$ nslookup

I wonder if the bind libs/tools would allow to do this from code.

Problem is, AFAICT, this feature isn't well supported by all servers, and 
especially not by the wonderful windows2000 ones.

With this information, we would be able to automatically build a cache, and 
probably update it once in a while (in the background).
