OK, I'm a liar -- bind does handle this. Cool.

Standard BSD allows it, what do you expect :-)

This is good news, because it means there is a precedent for multiple
addresses on a single interface so we can kill the <ifname>:<n>
syntax in favor of the above which is cleaner of more accurately
represents what is happening.

If this is really true, 2.5.x is an appropriate time to make
this, no sooner.
