[Pdns-users] How to remove zones from BIND backend?

I'm using the BIND backend with autoprimaries, and also adding zones 
with "pdns_control bind-add-zone example.com filename". Both of these 
successfully add the zone to the named.conf file.

Is there a way to later *remove* a zone from the named.conf file using 
pdns_control (or some other programmatic method)?

I guess I'm looking for something like "pdns_control bind-delete-zone 
example.com", but the only way I can find to do it is to manually edit 
the named.conf file and then use "pdns_control rediscover".

(I've tried "pdnsutil delete-zone example.com", but that just gives 
"Failed to delete domain 'example.com'".)
