Nice! I've waited for something like this, we can remove some
quirks now from our setup.

I've just installed OpenDBX and an OpenDBX enabled PowerDNS in
our semi-production environment, before starting a rollout in our
production environment.

I've encountered several smaller issues:

Typo in Error Message for opendbx-host:

                        stringtok( m_hosts[READ], getArg( "host" ), ", " );
                        m_hosts[WRITE] = m_hosts[READ];

Second Problem:

How do i configure opendbx to connect to my MySQL database 
using a Socket? I've tried the usual tricks with setting
host-read to localhost:/path/to/socket, setting port to
/path/to/socket, but neither worked. Theres no -socket
configuration parameter either.

I've had a few Problems with compiling OpenDBX itself, but was
able to fix that myself (updated the Wiki-Installation pages).

Anyway, many thanks for all the work.
