I've done some more hacking on the DNS library and released 0.5.0.  Main 
improvements are in the DNS resolver code.

I resurrected some 2005 code that Dave wrote for DNS resolution, so the Lwt 
Dns_resolver module can now parse resolv.conf files, or just take a static 
server to point at.  The interface makes fancy use of first-class modules; I 
couldn't resist :-)

Also, I put in an 'mldig' command which apes 'dig' in terms of output format. 
It's complete enough to do most lookups, but still needs some more work to get 
the more obscure bits of dig working.

Note that you need latest cstruct-0.5.1 here, as I added string_to_enum and 
enum_to_string to make it easier to do command line parsing of all the various 
cenums used in the library.

So Mort, how goes cstruct vs bitstring benchmarking? :-)
