Definitely agreed.  Dan's abrasive as hell (I can be too... hahaha) and I
avoid his software at times just for that reason, but can't argue that qmail
and djbdns are pretty solid security and speed-wise.

With BIND 9 being quite the bloatware, djbdns is an interesting possibility
for many... lightweight and not designed to do dynamic updates, but they're
evil anyway.  :-)
