That's right, but I wanted to mention that if you name an option
disable-... and the default value is "no", it is activated by default
(until you set it to "yes").
If you name something enable-... and defaults are "no" then you do not
want to provide this functionality (perhaps for security reasons)
until the user enables it and hopefully knows what he is doing.
The other thing you are pointing to is the reversed (false) behaviour
introduced by the new axfr checking code. I still explained the
correction in my other mail (cut the "!" in the first if statement).
