what is the difference between DNSCrypt and a simple compination of
ssh and socat? something like:

 Iclient$ ssh -L 5353: server
 Iserver$ socat tcp4-listen:5353,reuseaddr,fork UDP:dns.server:53
 Iclient# socat -T15 udp4-recvfrom:53,reuseaddr,fork tcp:
 Iclient# echo "nameserver" > /etc/resolv.conf

works well to encrypt DNS queries to a dns server of choice.
