I actually never heard of sdb.
I'm not even able to find an specific URL for the project, even tho
I've found some pages for specific drivers:

I'll go and take a look at it, so I can compare.

bind-dlz is far from complete. It only allow queries (no dynamic
updating for you, unless you go directly to the database), the
database is pretty confusing (but it can be easly improved),
and you can't have bind configuration itself on the database.

Maybe sdb will be better. I'll have to check it out.
