This message is to announce a python module, Strangle, which provides a 
convenient way for mere mortals to parse DNS packets in Python, based on 
the mature functionality of BIND 9.

Strangle allows you to see DNS messages in two ways:

   * Direct access to the libbind parsing routines (C-style)
   * A Python object with various meaningful attributes (OO-style)

Strangle is free software, available under the GNU GPL v2.  It is stable 
and is being used used in DNS high-availability applications.

Strangle is confirmed to work with Python 2.3 and up, on Linux and Solaris.
