[Opendnssec-develop] More configuration for signer and auditor

Hi - 

I have the following bug report for the auditor (which really involves 
communication between the signer and the auditor) :

"Signer engine wants to audit the <ZONE>.signed file in the temp directory 
before outputing it to the final destination. But the auditor is looking 
for the signed zone at the given location in the zonelist.xml. The signer 
engine should somehow tell the auditor where it can find the temporary 
file, since the signer engine is not writing the final file until it has 
been audited."

We could do this in a number of ways :

a) Naming by convention - the signer will always write the temporary file 
to the working directory with a particular prefix, so the auditor will 
always know where to find it
b) XML configuration - the config will specify where to write the 
temporary file, so the signer and auditor will be told where to put/find 
c) Command line parameter - the signer will tell the auditor where to find 
the file when it starts it up.

Any preferences?
