Stephane, we generate the config automatically, as everybody who has
more than twenty zones ;-) But the config looks ... ehm ... quite ugly.
My natural feeling is that if something must be repeated 65k+ times,
something is wrong. Or at least it deserves few minutes of thinking
about pros and cons... The solution seems quite simple and
straightforward to me, but NSD maintainers will have the final word.
