I think this attitude is the best. At least new admins planning DNS 
server deployment *will know* that they should probably keep off LDAP 
backend, since it's unmaintained.

My opinion is that LDAP backend is a very good solution for (at least) 
small-to-mid sized organizations which can store/manage/use in a DIT all 
their data and use standard admin tools, and this backend should be 
maintained, but you are right: Since no direct interest is expressed 
(which I still find surprising), there is no other way to go.

Pitty I am not a (professional) developer and my organization doesn't 
have the resources to invest in improving an already good (as I think) 
piece of software. We'll have to live with the current version and 
probably migrate to other backend later - unless things change. Maybe 
some people/organization will continue to find LDAP backend cool enough 
to give it a push. :-)
