  Totally agree. In fact, recently there have been multiple instances of discussions wherein this exact same topic was discussed and unanimously everyone agrees that for various reasons having a default local DNS resolver running at is the best solution. And going forward it'll be even more beneficial.

Paul pointed to one of these discussions in his reply.

I plan to file a feature/change request for this one. I got caught up with other work this past week so could not do it. Will start with it right away.

Thank you!
