Hi Ralph,

 To add few more points to my queries, as you said earlier "addhost" and
"addhostfile" features will come soon. So can you please tell how we are
going to use those features, will there be any API for that to calll from
inside the program or we have to execute command to use those features.

Thanks,

Regards,
