Working with Phillip at the moment and have pointed out the minor issues with this charm.

metadata.yaml file needs to be updated with summary, description and interfaces
needs a readme file populated with the use of the charm
start and stop hooks should be used
install file needs to be cleaned up
config.yaml can be used to modify some of the configurable options in this charm ( NON-BLOCKER )

Looks like we had the same idea and could merge these idea/branches

If you continue with your codebase, here are some things I ran into:

"service ddclient stop" does not work in precise, and which causes multiple ddclients to run even in the simple case, so I had to "fix" the init script or start/stop it manually w/o init. I chose to "fix" the script in the install hook.

One thing I did in my script as well was rather than setting the config option every time I want to associate w/ ddclient,
I grab the servicename as the hostname. Since config-changed is never called on an add-relation I build the config file
in a juju-info hook.
