Yes. The idea is being able to convert "many" types of log-files into a
unified database scheme. So no matter if the admin is pcapping his
nameserver, or has turned on logs for his Bind/Powerdns/etc. he will be
able to use the tool.
Surely I would first have to check the pros/cons of using the pcapping
solution over using the built-in logging.

Ah cool thanks for the links. Really very interesting projects, I will
definitely have a closer look at them. DNS2db is actually very similar
to what I want to achieve.
