I've written appropriate os.c for oidentd (tested witch 2.0.5 & 2.0.7)
Patch against RELENG_4 & os.c could be found here:

Could anyone test it and submit comments?
It works for me & my ISP for 12h now without any problems.


ps. it should be easy to extend it's possibilities to work with lets say
5 diffrent natds, but natd should use some standard /var/run/natd/dir/ for 
connections sockets, so utils like oidentd/os.c could easy query any working

I'm thinking even about sth like 'ipnat -l' for natd or controling libalias's
links ie. reseting, changing expire times etc...
