Pawel Krzesniak, from NASK (".pl" registry), just announced on a CENTR
mailing list that ".pl" now uses IXFR to speed up the transfer of new
data to the secondaries. And he is very happy about the results.

At the present time, nsd, acting as a server, refuses IXFR. Acting as
a client, nsd-xfer has no IXFR support and, since it is completely
separated from the name server, it seems difficult to add it.

Are there any plans to add IXFR in nsd? Is it realistic?
