The pico editor is often recommended to *nix newcomers as it's easy to
learn. I've found that Gnu Emacs has a zone mode that automatically
updates the serial number when writing the zone file. However, I've
switched to dynamic updates so now I do all my zone maintenance with
nsupdate. Still use Emacs for the config file.

BIND is one of those programs that's *so* configurable that writing a
GUI configurator for it would be a tough design problem.
