See contrib/zone-edit.sh, in the BIND9 tarball; it does something
along those lines.

But that's also pretty much what inline-signing does internally.

Note that if you're using inline-signing, then when you query for the
SOA you'll get one from the signed version of the zone, not the raw
version, which will usually have a different serial number.  But it's
usually going to be higher, so it's probably safe to do things this way.
