We recently switched from Bind to PowerDNS for a box. The box has two
public interfaces (say with addresses and Bind was
configured using two views each with different match-destinations
setting so that Bind can answer differently depending whether clients
hit and

It would be nice if PowerDNS can do this too using pipe backend.
Currently there's no way for the piped script to know the listening IP
address of PowerDNS.

So currently I run two PowerDNS instances on each interface, something
which thankfully is very easy to configure.
