Would you consider adding an config variable for this?  In my view, the
patched behavior is more "palatable" than that implemented/documented. 
Besides, the editfiles solution is a kind of kludge... It would be a win
to be able to specify, "these are your name servers," and have cfengine
enforce that as a consequence of the resolv: action.
