I currently think that this is driving the magic "too far". If one
decides to run bind chrooted, that one should also be able to modify
the aide rules themselves.

I might reconsider this decision should good arguments come in. Is
there any other rule in aide that parses third-party configuration
just to obtain a single setting? I know that the amanda rules do this,
but amanda rules would be a horrible mess otherwise.
