* Detailed description:
BIND10 suite implements two crucial network services - DNS and DHCP. 
The BIND10 is going to replace both widely used ISC BIND9 and ISC DHCP4 
software in the future. It is written from scratch and has modular design.

The main advantages are:
- modular design
--  authoritative nameserver runs in separate processes. Bug in supplementary 
  process won't affect availability of the server domain
--  b10-ddns (DDNS service), b10-xfrin (incomming zone transfers), b10-xfrout 
  (outcomming zone transfers), b10-stats (statistics) 
--  recursive server runs as separate process (b10-resolver) 
- modern design, improved scalability
- officially supported SQL database backends (only SQLite currently but 
  MySQL and PostgreSQL are planned)
