by throwing away all your existing zonefiles, DNS configuration, DNS
tools and a bunch of features which djbdns doesn't support, you get to
use rsync to transfer zonefiles around.  an additional part of the price
you pay is djb's moronic non-free software license and his rabid
reinvent-the-wheel-as-a-square-because-it-wasn't-invented-here attitude.

big deal.

bind can do rsync zone transfers merely by writing a wrapper script for
named-xfer. i've done it.  it works.
