Well, "it depends" :) I know people who want the zone file removed when
they drop a slave zone, and so would I. In the current implementation it
would mean having to create a 'cleanup' process; while trivial, it does
mean extra housekeeping.

Maybe 'killzone', which would delzone and unlink(2) would be a useful
addition? Just a thought...
