Argh. This is a "too many buttons for people to push" problem. We're still seeing
combined auth/resolver servers because of bind, and it's bad in general. Let's
not try and repeat it using nsd+unbound hacks.

Run them on seperate machine's or IP's as indepdendant services. If you want
unbound to catch up on nsd reloads, script it so that unbound drops its cache.
