Well, not really, the "only" issue is the fact that the signer crashed, and
the enforcer did roll some zsk while the signer was out.

When I started the signer again, it failed to notice that the config had
been changed.

The auditor complaining of that is only because the signer did not notice
that there were new keys, and that the new keys (when I did ods-signer
update --all to try to fixup things) were going straight to active.

My fix was to restore old conf without the new zsk manually, update --all,
re add the new zsk manually in published mode (without the <ZSK> element)
reupdate the signer so that it notices the new keys, then after a bit
(about the TTL of the RRSIG) swap the ZSK so that the new is used for
