I tend to agree that if you're using PowerDNS exclusively as mentioned,
you won't need to bother with the SOA serial number. However: there may
come the day when you'll want to be master for slave AXFRs, at which
time it *does* become important. I'd implement SOA serial number
updating now, before you forget ;-)
