Import of existing bind zone doesn't handle AAAA records #78

I'm trying to import an existing bind zone with AAAA records and I'm seeing two broken behaviors:

  1. AAAA records after an A record are treated as duplicates of the A record
  2. AAAA records before any A records are dropped

This zone file demonstrates both issues:

$TTL   86400
@       IN      SOA (
      2013042516    ; Serial
      28800         ; Refresh
      7200      ; Retry
      1209600   ; Expire
      86400)        ; Negative Cache TTL
@       IN      NS
@       IN      NS
@       IN      NS
@       IN      NS
@   IN  AAAA        2600:3c03::f03c:91ff:fedf:ef4d
@   IN  A
@   IN  MX  10
@ IN A
blah    IN  AAAA        2600:3c03::f03c:91ff:fedf:ef4d

I agree that the zone importer does not handle AAAA records very well. This will probably take more work than a simple bug fix so I've targeted it for v1.2.
