duplicate entry added to named.conf.local on each package reconfigure

Bug Description

Running dpkg-reconfigure maas-dns breaks the current dns config

Observation seems to indicate that each reconfigure appends the following line to /etc/bind/named.conf.local

include "/etc/bind/maas/named.conf.maas";

This causes bind to choke and output confusing messages about multiple definitions of the master zone

ProblemType: Bug
DistroRelease: Ubuntu 12.10
Package: maas-dns 0.1+bzr1264+dfsg-0ubuntu1
ProcVersionSignature: Ubuntu 3.5.0-17.28-generic 3.5.5
Uname: Linux 3.5.0-17-generic i686
ApportVersion: 2.6.1-0ubuntu3
Architecture: i386
Date: Mon Oct 15 17:04:52 2012
InstallationMedia: Ubuntu-Server 12.10 "Quantal Quetzal" - Release i386 (20121014)
PackageArchitecture: all
 PATH=(custom, no user)
SourcePackage: maas
UpgradeStatus: No upgrade log present (probably fresh install)

1. Install MAAS with DNS server.
2. dpkg-reconfigure maas-dns
3. make sure line is not duplicationed in /etc/bind/maas/named.conf.maas

Tested in the lenovo lab. Runnning "dpkg-reconfigure maas-dns" does not append the same include line over and over.

I see two ways to fix this:
- we can fix this in the packaging and avoid adding the entry in /etc/bind/named.conf.local if it's already there
- we can fix the 'get_named_conf' command so that it won't include the snippet if it's already there. Maybe we could use write_custom_config_section (src/provisioningserver/utils.py) but I wonder if we can manage the upgrade properly.
