I second this.  And although I like Doug's use of AXFR from the roots
(like others reported, it definitely speeds things up), I also want to
continue to respect rootserver operators and dns-ops's concerns.

So offering the template configuration to do so, but not enabling it by
default, is a very good thing.  Thank you for doing this, Doug.
