behavior, and thought about being able to choose any of kod-limited,
kod-noserve, and kod-query.
PHK suggested that we consider going the other way - KOD would mean
"Send KODs whenever appropriate".
I wonder what the costs/benefits will be when weighing the extra
complexity of "multiple choices" against "when the defaults change and
we get new behavior that we can't tune, that costs us in X and Y."
This gets a bit more complicated when taking into consideration:
- we'll get more traffic from a NAT gateway
- - do we need to be able to configure a threshhold for this case?
- we should pay attention to how a client, whom we find to be abusive,
- - getting no response
- - getting a KOD response
and adapt accordingly.
