What does this have over PowerDNS?
Probably nothing, else that I am using it and packaging it for my own and thought that it would be a good idea to contribute to Debian, is redundancy a problem ?

Even if you're a perfectly responsible maintainer, a new package still
requires some work by ftpmaster, the release team, possibly the security team,
and so on.  It also increases the number of options a user has to choose
between.  If the package is redundant, this is a waste of their time.

It is a network daemon, so you should also considering security:
different implementations *could* help security,
so redundancy not always is wast of time.
