My perspective on this is that the BIND in the base should have a solid 
default configuration that fits the needs of the majority of our users, 
and anything else can be done with the port which has knobs for things 
like threads/no threads and replacing the base install.

What I did when I was at Yahoo! was to create a package on a master server 
and then install the package on all my clients. In fact, that's why I 
developed the "replace base" code in the first place.
