[unisog] DNS Manager?

BIND works great for us. Internally we use dynamic DNS. The interface 
to add/remove entries is easy to learn, and ISC DHCPd writes dynamic 
DNS, which keeps all our end-user addresses up to date.

Externally we modify the flatfiles.

In both cases, we use BINDs internal AXFR to keep master and slave 
servers in sync (no rsync, no outages/dropped requests). When we 
update a flatfile on the external server, we use rndc (also a part if 
BIND by default) to reload that single zone without any outages or 
dropped requests ("rndc reload marist.edu").
