systemd, launchd, and libc, and mpr, and every other place where dns 
client logic is needed, should just link against getdns, and not try to 
understand or to improve upon the best available dns client logic.

if getdns isn't desireable for some reason then use ldns or lwdnsd.

where systemd went wrong was trying to understand and improve.
