Depends on the frontend. If it lets the user impersonate as personal
user account on the DB connection you get the real who.

It would be nice if the PowerDNS API would have a config option like
"connect-as-user" to avoid using a hard-coded API password/key. In this
case you could also let the database backend enforce access control even
for API requests.

Ciao, Michael.
