Yup. I learned that as well.

As a side note: can you imagine my surprise when, after waiting all that
time BIND then crashed on me after being fed OpenDNSSEC keys? Had to
start all over and explain excessive hair loss to the missus ...

It's thanks to Warren's keyroll.systems that I actually persisted
testing, and only then did I report the crash to ISC, whereupon I was
forced to wait a full rollover period until I was allowed to talk about
it. ;-)
