Thanks for the patch.

But if I may, personally I'm not in favor of adding munin plugins as random ports like this. Maybe add it to munin-contrib? Or maybe call it munin-contrib-bind9 or something like that?

CC munin maintainer for opinion.

I can add it to munin-contrib, yes.

(In reply to Mathieu Arnold from comment #2)

mat@, I have been in touch with Shumon, the bind9stats.py author, who is interested in its inclusion with Munin. In my opinion, its use of the stats channel makes it at least unique, and perhaps superior, relative to the two BIND plugins in Munin stable [0] [1] and six BIND plugins in Munin contrib [2], all of which use a query log or a stats dump. I will be glad, with Shumon's participation, to work on getting the plugin accepted upstream in one or the other repository. In the mean time, how would you prefer to ship it in the ports tree? How can I help tee it up?
