i wish it was this time manaer on dns servers that still try to keep 
ttl low, and later claims there servers is not performing well to ones 
dns load :/

or even that lame resolvers try to get dns names from there own zones

very geekelble :)

i think its more usefull to talk about:

emerge --buildpkgonly bind

on the dev box

and on server farms:

emerge --usepkgonly bind


this could maybe get Eivind intrested?
