Lucid BIND9 - SRU'ing new upstream version (9.7.0->9.7.3)

The Ubuntu Server and Ubuntu Security team are considering performing an
SRU of Bind9 version 9.7.3 replacing the current 9.7.0 in Lucid.
The main rational for this is the DNSSEC failure as outlined on Ubuntu
bug #651875 . However, there are many other changes, as outlined by
the upstream changelog . We did look at cherry picking the patches
which resolve the main concerns, but we would be reproducing much of the
upstream release - making it potentially more unstable and harder to
maintainer long term.
Concerns with this is that 9.7.3 isn't yet in the Ubuntu development
version, or in Debian. However, it should hopefully be there soon
(hopefully today, thanks LaMont). The Debian Maintainer, has just
uploaded to a Lucid PPA which is currently building.
I'm hoping that some interested people would be able to comment on this
option, and be able to test this package from the PPA, and look for
potential regressions (both in use, and upgrade handling).
If the feedback seems positive, we'll undergo the normal SRU procedure
with added caution.
Thanks for your help!
