There are security implications, but if IIRC then you can do dynamic updates
quite easily with BIND 9 and there are several front-ends available
somewhere on freshmeat.net or similar. Otherwise, you end up doing all sorts 
of nasty textfile parsing or using some bodged SQL hack backend. In fact, I 
haven't looked at BIND 9 properly yet, but can't you back-end it with 
something like SQL or LDAP?
