Bug Description

>> Come to think of it, wouldn't it be also good to add a "Add PTR record" when adding an A host for a domain?

I can't commit this to 0.6.1, but if you can please add a request at >launchpad, it will be taken care of in one of the coming releases.

As per discussion in the mailling list above. Making administration a little bit easier to automatically adding a PTR record to the reverse DNS zone.
Not sure if this tickbox should only be shown when the reverse zone doesn't exist ie. option is greyed out with a mouse over popup indicating the reason it is disabled (ie need to create the zone before it does it) or should it be there and automatically create the zone if you tick it... up for discussion I suppose.

The same should be applied to deleting records giving the option to delete the PTR records if it exists.
