You're doing stuff like rev-server=172.23.2.0/23,172.23.2.1
but the reverse zone isn't trivially representable as an in-addr.arpa
zone unless the prefix length is divisible by 8
2.23.172.in-addr.arpa corresponds with 172.23.2.0/24, but what's the
equivalent for 172.23.2.0/23
You can do nasties with cnames, but rev-server doesn't. It also doesn't
seem to error if size%8 != 0, which is bad.
