IPv6 records: I'm not sure whether you mean the obsolete AAAA records or
the experimental A6 records. Anyway, as you already know, tinydns
supports all record types.
DNSSEC: I already pointed you to http://cr.yp.to/djbdns/forgery.html.
My top priority for djbdns is to implement an anti-forgery system that
TSIG and IXFR: For replication, ssh and rsync do a much better job. For
client-to-cache communication, IPSEC does a better job. I don't think
I've had even one request for TSIG or IXFR from my users.
