If it's made the default, could we at least look in named.conf, extract 
the forwarders, add a sensible interfaces line and put them in smb.conf? 
IOW, generally make it a painless transition to those of us who 
provisioned with bind and who would like to give internal a go without 

Is that a possibility?
