Doing away with named(8) in base is okay with me, but removing the other
tools that are part of bind (namely host(1) and dig(1)) isn't. They're
too useful and too common not to be expected in a base system.
That is why drill is coming in. Problem is you can't really dump BIND
without dumping the related tools, too. AFAICT they are too glued
together, don't know how to say it. If you keep the parts of BIND in
base that you need for the tools like host and dig there is not much
difference in keeping the entire BIND distribution in base.
