These features have been enabled per default, and I would love to get some
feedback from the unbound community on how well this works before enabling
these options in the full fedora releases (F-13 and F-12. The RHEL-5 package
will not enable these options per default)

Note that if you are upgrading an existing unbound package, you will have to
enable these options yourself by adding these lines to the unbound.conf server

 	prefetch: yes
 	prefetch-key: yes
