I'm not sure this is a good idea. dig shouldn't get more bloatware to
parse rndc.conf for named.conf to fish out TSIG keys. Or to parse zone
files for SIG(0) keys. Or whatever. I'm sure you can see where this
slippery slope is headed... Besides, won't whoever is making dig do
TSIG authentication already have the K*+157+* file(s) available, no?
