replying in the right thread this time :-)

I like the idea and the fact that the backend is available as open source.
That should make it pretty straight forward to convert it to other DNS
solutions (PowerDNS for me).

- What happens if there is a conflict?
- Does it require / assume that the domain is non-existant on the DNS
- How does cleanup handle additional records added outside of CloudStack?
