I've discussed that with Kai and Metze and the plan is to get rid of nsupdate. 
Rewrite samba_dnsupdate to use the python library we already have or our own 
implementation. Kai said he will work on that but we do not have a timeframe 
for that.

We could think about an environment variable to increase the max packet value 
in socket_wrapper. Metze what do you think about that?
