Excellent question. What I've (sadly) done in the past is to just get
the contents of the resolv.conf to the state that's "right" (127.0.0.1
followed by the provider's DNS servers, RR's in this case) and then
chattr +i it so pump et al don't fsck with it :/
better answers would be appreciated, but with pump seemingly heading
out to pasture, approaches that work nicely with dhclient score bonus
points (esp. with Debian/non-RHL users :)
