[Unbound-users] Wishlist for unbound-control

Good evening,

I travel to customer sites frequently and when there, I need to add a
forwarder to my workstation's Unbound in order to access (insecured)
zones on a customer's name server. In order to do so, I reconfigure
Unbound with something like this:

        domain-insecure: "example.corp"
        ...
        forward-zone:
                name: "example.corp"
                forward-addr: 10.2.1.1
                forward-addr: 10.0.0.1

Would it be possible to add such a functionality to unbound-control? 
Particularly in the light of DNSSEC-trigger gaining in popularity, I
consider that a useful addition. :)

I can already add individual RR to Unbound, like in

        unbound-control local_data printer.mens.de. A 10.0.0.10

A similar command to add an insecure forwarder for individual zones
would be great! Something along the lines of

        unbound-control remote_zone mega.corp 10.0.0.1 10.2.1.1

Thanks & regards,

        -JP
