Yeah, in the djbdns case, it's more of a situation of not wanting to
stick with an arcane file layout.  Most of us have more experience
dealing with bind.  I've found the djbdns stuff hard to use.

The original plan was to get rid of all of the djb utilities but you
may have noticed that we're still using qmail and ezmlm.  I'm very
comfortable with them.
