Does it really have to be? If all BIND did was ask <site> "What is the
version and date of the latest (security) update?", compared that with
what it had internally, and said nothing about its own version in the
query, the only thing that would leak about the version of BIND would be
that it was asking in the first place, telling someone "It is no older
than <foo>." Right?
