Hi Stephane,

I've been talking to the NSD people to get them to improve support for
NSID. The current version (3.2.4) has NSID support, but one has to
enable it at compile time, and the value can only be set on the command
line, but not in the config file. The next release will compile in NSID
support by default, and provide a config file option to set it. We hope
to enable this feature for K-root in the near future.
