djbdns has always had source port randomization which is the technique used to alleviate the
current problem.  Few other DNS implementations used source port randomization, but those that
did were also not vulnerable to this attack.  Or perhaps not *as* vulnerable is a better way
to put it.  After the big patch last month, all of the major DNS implementations have roughly
the same level of vulnerability to this attack.
