This module doesn't really do much, it just creates a handler to pass off the paranoid handling to Net::DNS::Paranoid. And although it claims to support the same feature set as LWPx::ParanoidAgent, it's missing the most important feature- the timeout is the standard LWP timeout, whereas ParanoidAgent's applies "overall, from start to finish. not just between socket reads. and it includes all redirects. so attackers telling you to download from a malicious tarpit webserver can only stall you for $n seconds".
