I would like first to thank the developpment team for this
interesting piece of software.

I'm using dnsmasq at home, and I'm beeing using it at work on
an experimental network. It is very practical to me, and so
far it works great (dns, dhcp with pxe).

However I'm in the need of a DNS server that accepts AXFR
requests. This is a request from my admins if I want my
dnsmasq-ed server to be set-up as the primary dns server for
my experimental network, the secondary would be bind9 on my
main office-network (which I don't administer).

I understood that AXFR is not supported on dnsmasq (I've
checked some mailing list archives before writing here).

; <<>> DiG 9.3.4 <<>> mydomain.fr @dnsip AXFR
; (1 server found)
;; global options:  printcmd
; Transfer failed.

My questions are:
- is it planned to be supported in any future release ?
- would you think it would be a huge amount of work to do so
  (please understand that I'm asking for an advice if ever I'd
  try and add the feature by myself)
