I have an idea about customizing dnsmasq config /var/run/nm-dns-dnsmasq.conf, which is generated by NM.

First, I've added some lines (like `address=/localhost/` - it's really userfull, because 
/etc/hosts doesn't work with wildcards) in dnsmasq config. Then I understood that editing /etc/dnsmasq.conf 
gives no effect :) So I've found file /var/run/nm-dns-dnsmasq.conf. It's generated dynamically by 

Please, think about such feature: user can create a constant prefix and suffix configs (let it be a section 
in /etc/NetworkManager/NetworkManager.conf) which will be included into /var/run/nm-dns-dnsmasq.conf. Right 
now user can't deal with dnsmasq configuration at all.

As of NM 0.9.6, you should be able to drop your own configuration
into /etc/NetworkManager/dnsmasq.d which then dnsmasq will pick up and
merge into your configuration.  Are you able to test that out and see if
it works for you?

Also, /etc/hosts should still be read by glibc's resolver no matter
what; does your /etc/hosts file contain any lines for, and if
so, what are they?  If there aren't any lines, then you should add them;
something has removed them and that's a problem.
