thinking more about this...

For a full dnsmasq setup, we will need to control resolv.conf and /etc/hosts:

 - To define the fqdn and the additional names it serves, we need to
control /etc/hosts

 - I think we will need to still control resolv.conf. I am not sure if
we really want it controlled by dhclient -- that would override
hand-picked DNSs, for example OpenDNS.
