Just because you want to use samba with bind flat files doesn't make it 
the right thing to do. I have have been using bind9 dlz with samba4 for 
3 years now and it does what it is supposed to do, I know there are a 
few things that need sorting, but they are minor and I am sure they will 
get fixed eventually.

I wouldn't bother rushing to create a patch to make flat files work 
again, I don't think it would be accepted.
