Unfortunately, opendnssec does not support runtime switching between
sqlite and mysql. Since mysql is quite the dependancy for people
will just a handful of zone, I opted for sqlite as the default for
EPEL6 and EPEL7, and this will also be the default for RHEL7.

there is some old documentation on opendnssec that states sqlite is
unstable and one should prefer mysql, but I believe that is oudated
advise my now.
