[Pdx-pm] whois

I'm writing a script that needs to check the availability of a domain. 
I've been using Net::DLookup with moderate satisfaction until yesterday.

I ran it on a couple of really obvious domains, and it told me that the
domain we.org was not taken.  Shocked, I ran to my command line to see
what was a matter, and running whois I recieved such a clatter.

we.org is taken.

So, is there a better module for looking up domain availability that
anyone has used?
