I was initially excited about powerdns, but in the subsequent fruitless
search for a good management utility, I've concluded that it's not
practical for us, since dns data maintenance is a highly skilled task
with powerdns. The management wants to farm out the daily dns activities
to level one personnel, and there is currently no suitable admin
interface to powerdns to make that possible.

So we're watching pdns and hoping for an eventual solution, but for now
we're compelled to stay with bind 9, and add something like an
appliansys dnsbox300 as the dns master, to provide a web based dns
management interface which can be turned over to personnel who are
reasonably intelligent, but not necessarily highly skilled or experienced.

I'm still playing pdns on my home network, while looking for that
missing piece, because I like it, and don't mind doing sql queries to
maintain zone data.
