Autoserial is the fact that you can set the serial to 0 for a zone and 
pdns updates it automatically, right? The docs seem to suggest this.

If so then, yes I am using it because I use an automated system that 
inserts records into my MySQL backend and using autoserial I do not have 
to calculate the serial myself.
If this functionality would disappear I'd have to create this myself...
