Forcing new users to deal with historic burden is not an answer.
Use a old kernel - loose features.
I really can't understand your problem with limiting chroot bind9
feature to kernels with --bind mounts support. They still can run bind9
perfectly, although less securely.
If 2.2 kernel users want chrooted bind, they
a) have already done it - no extra work
b) upgrade to 2.4 - sheez, that was hard...
c) do it manually - no more work than it is now
who the hell has to do more work, if we add *support* for
*automaticly* running bind9 in chroot jail if the kernel
supports --bind mounts?
