Maybe a "getdns daemon" would be an interesting hackathon project, and
maybe even a "getdns NSS module".

>From draft-ietf-dprive-dns-over-tls:

    ...software implementing this protocol is assumed to support idle,
    persistent connections and be prepared to manage multiple,
    potentially long-lived TCP connections.

Ideally those connections would be managed at a system-wide level.  The
stub resolver in short-lived processes (e.g. "ping www.example.com...
^C") shouldn't be starting up and tearing down fresh TLS connections
directly to the recursive DNS server.
