My motivation as a user, and sysadmin, is security and privacy of all
kinds of end user data. However, I don't want to sacrifice much of the
performance or ease of use of DNS/UDP to avoid data snooping in the last
mile. That is what the announcement at
http://www.opendns.com/technology/dnscrypt/ claims to provide.
However, OpenDNS isn't open enough for me. Given the responses, it seems
that VPN is still the best solution.
