Has anyone considered, or implemented, a configuration file parser for 
BIND using XML?  If nothing else, an XML to "named.conf" file 
translator would suffice.

If feels like XML is the future for configuration files.  The syntax 
for the BIND configuration is almost XML now, it's hierarchical and 
well structured, so the changes should be minimal. There are many good 
XML editors available, which would make editing the configuration file 

Just curious,
