I agree with Alan, the command line and private tools are great for DNS 
admins; but when you need to give end users the ability to 24x7 change 
RRs in their zones, automated tools seem to be the only option.

I imagine that the "write once" vs "write and then click" holy war does 
not apply in this case.
