our caching resolver loads multiple ad/malware zone lists all using 
single empty zone, works fine - except when the two lists have 
overlapping zones then bind bitches and bails out if bind is restarted - 
just logs a warning on the fly though without dying, something I wish 
would happen on restarts, so just combined the lists into one file 
running with some awk, sort, and uniq magic, problem solved.

If you have the urge to reply to all rather than reply to list, you best
first read
