[Pdns-users] mongodb backend

I'm the author for the mongodb backend.

It was me who told Peter and Bert to delete the backend from PowerDNS.

The reason for this was simple. When the client of Mongodb 
(libmongoclient.a) initialize, it will run through a number of internal 
test to see that everything is ok. One of those tests is to check for a 
MD5 sum. This will fail with an assert if you would try it, since
libmongoclient.a will call the function in PowerDNS with the same name,
but with differents parameters, so the result will not be the expected, 
and therefor will terminate with an assert.

> Hello. What happened with mongodb backend? Why nobody cares of it?
> Is that posible to revert it into official status of supported backends?
