So what *exactly* happens on upgrade?  Before the upgrade, most resolv.conf
files will not point to 127.0.0.1.  What will they point to after the
upgrade, and if they will point to 127.0.0.1, which package will actually
do that, and what will happen with the old contents of the file?  For
example, is it assumed that ifcfg-* are always authoritative and it's safe
to just overwrite resolv.conf?

Similarly, what do we tell users who used to edit /etc/resolv.conf to do in
the new system?

Generally, the page doesn't actually say *which* resolver will be used.
Has that been decided?  Or is that intentionally undefined?
