Comment 2 for bug 162821

Maybe you're right, maybe not. Maybe it's not a bug. If it is a feature, it's a wrong one, I think.
Is the tool intended to make the things easier? Suppose you're a teacher far from IT. You must not know anything of file hierarchy of the service. Look at Microsoft DNS - it's easy to setup! While BIND is a puzzle, and gbindadmin is a puzzle too. (puzzle * puzzle) = (puzzle ^ 2).
Is it the Ubuntu mission to complicate things? I don't think so.
