It's not such a bad thing.  One of my zones uses M4 (though it wasn't my
idea) to generate internal vs external views.  I preferred hacking
sendmail.cf rather than doing that in M4 too, though.

Most of my zones are common templates, though I'm trying to figure out a
sensible way to let me CNAME the origin of domains hosted on external NSs.
