Probably not.  But the addtional packaging7build support should be much
easier to add than to implement dnstap support in dnsmasq.

Not likely.  That's more work, and one might question the value. I would
not expect a lot of users.  But I'm sure it's accepted if anyone wants
to do the work.

I guess not.

BTW, I see that OpenWrt also has pdns-recursor, so the set of resolver
software with dnstap support is even longer.  Absolutely no need to hack
on dnsmasq for this.
