Offtopic, but any chance we could get SSHFP records added?

I have used views, but never with samba, so the following is just 
speculation on my part.

I found an example here including non-samba DLZ inside view statements, 
so it seems to be at least theoretically possible:


If you only want to serve AD DNS on an internal view and hide it from 
external clients, I would imagine that this would work fine.  However, as 
samba only provides a single DLZ zone, I don't know what would happen if 
you put it into more than one view.  It might work fine and serve the same 
data in multiple views, or it might blow up (especially if you have 
multiple clients doing nsupdates from different views).  I would recommend 
testing your use case in a lab setup to see if it works for you.
