This method replaces an entire RRset (zone name + record type) in a
single transaction. If the name in question is "my.machine.invallid"
and the record type is "A', you can replace the *entire* set of A
records for that zone using this API call. If there are A records for
this name that you do not want to modify, you'll have to obtain them
first and include them in the API call.
