If resolvconf isn't doing what it should, then it is our  
responsibility as users to file enough bugs with enough pertinent info  
until it is corrected.
If you have a clear use case that fails, open a ticket.
I don't care which kind of connection management system is inside  
openmoko, as long as it works and is flexible to accommodate any  
networking scenario we may come up with (which pretty much narrows it  
down to resolvconf IMHO).
Let's make it work, ok? File the necessary bugs.
