Taking a hint from '(We already have too many choices on DNS, we need
less not more)', I went and had a look to see how hard it would be to
remove 'BIND_FLATFILE' from the python code.
This would be fairly easy, except I think we would have to drop support
for os_level 2000, this is because of this code in sambadns.py:
if os_level == DS_DOMAIN_FUNCTION_2000:
# Populating legacy dns
logger.info("Populating CN=MicrosoftDNS,CN=System,%s" % domaindn)
fill_dns_data_legacy(samdb, names.domainsid, domaindn,
hostname, hostip, hostip6, dnsadmins_sid)
