For what it's worth, most *nix OSs have files that are prepended and/or
appended to /etc/resolv.conf, which are the intended way of doing this.
They often come with corresponding man pages, too. OpenBSD has
/etc/resolv.conf.tail, and Ubuntu has base, head, and tail in the
/etc/resolvconf/resolv.conf.d directory.
