Verify raw data within slaves on 9.9.x

So essentially if I'm scripting on a slave and would like to check-into-svn changes within any particular 'raw' zone - I'll still need to rsync that 'text' zone/file from master...
I wish '/usr/bin/strings' act as '/bin/cat' on this new default 'raw' format

See the ARM under named-checkzone.
For example "named-checkzone -f raw -F text -s relative -j -o /var/lib/named/"
