I think I expressed my interest too. I have dnscrypt-proxy running for
quite a while on Cero.
Not on latest cero though.

I consider it to be a very nice setup:
- dnsmasq handles dhcp and static assignments, acts faux authoritative
for domains I want to return NXDOMAIN  and acts as local cache
- dnsmasq fowards everything else to local dnscrypt-proxy which sends
encrypted queries to a dnscrypt resolver at the other end (somewhere
over the cloud, 8ms away) which I control and which resolves queries
via unbound. Supports DNSSEC, keeps no logs and has experimental
support for Namecoin's .bit domains.
- I plug the DNS hole in cero's iptables so that no unencrypted DNS
traffic leaves the box.

I thought I've seen a github commit to add dnscrypt-proxy to cero, did
I see wrong?

Best regards,
