Eeewwww. Diversions are so, well, messy. I think the obvious right way to
handle this is to add debconf support to the bind9 package asking whether to
run in a chroot or not, and if the answer is yes, just do it. As has been
pointed out by Marco and others, bind9 is substantially easier to chroot than
previous versions, so this shouldn't be a big deal.
Having said that, since I don't personally run bind9 in a chroot, I continue
to be willing to accept a clueful patch to the current bind9 source in non-US
to implement this... but am in no big rush to implement it myself.
