This is true.  On the other hand, it replaces a 75-line function with
1473 lines of perl.  I wonder which has more overhead?

You are right about one thing:  If you are using SA anyway, then you
might as well try to reuse its DNS code.  But holding up SA code as an
example of "performance-optimized perl" is pretty ridiculous. :-)  SA
is a huge, bloated, infected-with-not-invented-here-syndrome pig.
