I would second this.  I was just about to respond recommending it
when I got to the end of the thread and saw this recommendation.

A couple of minor niggles I have found with PowerDNS in supermaster

- The zone has to have the slave listed as an NS

- When zones are removed they will stay in the PowerDNS database

They are not hard to work around.
