I don't have the Resources to setup another constantly running system. I 
CAN NOT have two continuously running hardware DNS Servers. I don't have 
enough electrical power for that. I can have spares that I can power up 
occasionally as backups that are offline most of the time.

I also do not want to create some convoluted Virtualization scheme to 
drain my resources. This is the entire reason I did not want to hand DNS 
over to Samba.

Additionally I have a bunch of existing users. I will NOT Rip my Domain 
to shreds over this.
