[Pdns-users] DDNS support or workaround?

I need it and I'm using a bind instance... but every time a dhcp request 
succeeds a zone of 25k records is transfered...

I've thought about patching isc dhcpd to fill a mysql database or about 
writing a new dhcp server based on for example dhcp4java (dhcpd-j.org) 
but never found time to do so.

Currently I have deactivated the Zone notification but set the Zone 
restransfer time to 600 Seconds so now its working quite ok.
