resolv.conf vs. sysctl



hello,

while thinking about ppp[d] and dns configuration i came to
conclusion, that existing mechanism is not flexible. yes, text files
are good thing. but wouldn't it be better to put the stuff into sysctl
tree?

when i looked at libc code doing parsing of the file for every
application which starts using resolver subroutines, it looked
horrible....
