Python/Twisted/Redis backed DNS server.

Python/Twisted/Redis backed DNS server.

# Python/Twisted/Redis backed DNS server - resolves from NAME to IP addrs
# fallback to google or any other DNS server to resolv domains not present on Redis
# to set a new domain on redis, just issue a SET domain.tld ip_addr
# run with twistd -ny txredns.tac
