[Opendnssec-develop] Long strings in TXT records

Hi - 

We have had an issue with long (> 255 bytes) strings in TXT records. The 
signer bombs out, saying this is illegal (as it is).

However, BIND automagically parses these RRs into RRs with lots of little 
strings, rather than one long string. So, these zone files *do* load in 

So, do we :

a) Refuse to recognise illegal TXT RRs, even though they load in BIND
b) Do the BIND "split" thing - taking care to always split on the same 
boundary (somehow)
