bind99 port overwriting named.conf

I upgraded ports yesterday and (much to my chagrin) found that 
/usr/local/etc/named/named.conf had been overwritten.

I initially reported it to the maintainer and was told "now, you know it 
does that and you can save it before upgrading.".

This seems to be counter to the way most (all?) other ports work, 
especially when it was not even a minor version upgrade.

Further, looking at, it seems 
the intent is:

"Install named.conf as named.conf.sample and don't overwrite on upgrade".

So which is it going to be going forward?

Please cc me on replies as I do not subscribe to this list.
