Hey, about dns caching.. I was going to do something like that, but then I
realized most eggdrops have their dns server either on localhost or at least on
a local network (for shells). Since their dns server already caches replies,
it's not a big deal to requery. We don't do dns lookups that often anyway. When
we do a lookup, we store the result somewhere (e.g. when someone connects via
telnet) and then use that stored value.

How much benefit do you think this has?
