Default DNS hosting script with PowerDNS

Hello.

Does anyone know of a script like http://source.xname.org/ with full support for PowerDNS?

I'm thinking of developing a free dns hosting solution based on PowerDNS that integrates Geo Location based responses: http://code.google.com/p/ruby-pdns/
But I have nothing to start with. It's fairly hard to integrate PowerDNS support in Xname...

It could even be a great addition to ISPConfig

PowerDNS is great software. We're running pdns-recursor where I work (national scale ISP in my country) for about 60.000 online peers with well over 500 queries/sec and it's holding out extremely well.
This is pdns-recursor running forked on 2x Intel(R) Xeon(R) CPU E5345 @ 2.33GHz and 5G's of RAM

PID USER PR NI VIRT RES SHR S %CPU %MEM TIME+ COMMAND
20837 pdns-rec 15 0 944m 799m 6228 R 17 15.8 1474:52 pdns_recursor
20836 pdns-rec 15 0 538m 534m 1580 S 4 10.6 291:24.11 pdns_recursor

Default

To be honest, pdns is not that great. I recently switched over from pdns to mydns-ng. mydns-ng supports some options pdns doesnt, like TTL's next to that, the default TTL's that are setup in pdns are incorrect for the netherlands (SIDN) and gives me errors trying to register a domain and forces me to go into the sourcecode to change it.

On the other hand, pdns performance is indeed excelent, though I have not had problems with mydns yet, I have no idea if it scales aswell as pdns does.

Then, last but not least. the database structures for both pdns and mydns are pretty simple. I wrote some php scripts to include in my own control panel and it should be fairly simple to write those for any control panel thats around. or even a custom panel.

If you need something fast, maybe you want to look at the control panel for DNS that comes with pdns and change that a bit to include the geo-ip
