[Pdns-users] Automatically delete zones that are deleted on Supermaster

Picking up on this older message, because this relates to the ticket #608.

I've created a patch as a fix for #608. The patch can be found here:

At the moment, this simply includes a list-all-zones and delete-zone command for pdnssec and pdns_control has gotten a list-zones and delete-zone command.
I've discussed pdns_control and pdnssec with Peter van Dijk and we're not planning on keeping the pdnssec implementation and dropping the pdns_control implementation.

The interesting part is that this patch would resolve 608 quite nicely, but would not help to find out which zone must be deleted.
I understand people look at the last_check field, but that is (at the moment) not outputted by list-all-zones (or any other commands).

I would like some feedback on this, as there are a number of options:
- Change list-all-zones to also show last_check (how would we format?)
- Change show-zone to output more information about the zone (this was also suggested in ticket #608)
- Create a delete-old-zones command which receives a last_check parameter and automatically deletes al zones that have a last_check field lower than the given command.

My preference would be to move to the 2nd option, but i'm not a big DNS operator so i have no clue if this is useful for you guys.

Any feedback is welcome!
