Why are there no GeoDNS solutions anywhere in sight?

I haven't done it yet but gdnsd appeared to be the one to use when I
tested some stuff out.  The idea was to deligate a geo.domainname.com
zone to gdnsd and have it perform the GEO DNS lookups.  The PowerDNS
one, while testing it, gave me problems trying to figure out how to get
the geographical data since the readme I was using was out of date and a
lot of the information lead to non-existent links etc.
