It used to work, many moons ago..   But I know it required special
custom dbus hacks to bind to get it to work.  But please... I really
miss this feature.  It's especially important for VPNs because right now
when I turn on a VPN I get the VPN DNS servers, and if the VPN dies
(like on their end) and stops transmitting packets then I lose DNS
completely (at least until I manually bring down the VPN).

With split-DNS/caching server it all worked great (although I did have
to modify the vpn handler in order to insert domains in the search-path
properly for the VPN dns servers.
