I have added block list support to Deadwood, to allow a large list
of host names to be blocked.

I have created a new service: `coLunacyDNS`, a simple Lua-based
DNS server which can return IPv4 (`A`) and IPv6 (`AAAA`) DNS 
records.  It has the ability to query other DNS servers, and
customize the answer given to the client based on the contents
of a Lua script.

   MaraDNS is a small and lightweight cross-platform open-source DNS
   server. The server is remarkably easy to configure for someone
   comfortable editing text configuration files. MaraDNS is released under
   a BSD license.

   I wrote MaraDNS while I was a college student and a travelling English
   teacher during the first 2000s decade. Now that I’m working as
   a professional software developer, I have much less time to devote
   to MaraDNS.

   Since MaraDNS is open source, there is nothing stopping anyone from 
   forking this repository; I ask such users to please not call any such 
   forks “MaraDNS”.
Now that I have been furloughed during the COVID-19 pandemic, I have
been actively adding new features to MaraDNS, most notably the new
`coLunacyDNS` service which uses Lua to customize DNS replies.

   As I type this, in the middle of the COVID-19 crisis, I find myself
   with a lot of free time again.  I am actively developing the new
   Lua-based nameservers based on my decades of experience writing DNS
   servers.  The servers right now can allow one to quickly implement
   custom solutions where customized resolution of DNS names is needed.
