This is already implemented in NetworkManager. I believe dnsmasq-base is
included by default in Lucid (in Karmic too I think).
You only need to select "Shared to other computers" when edit the IPv4
settings of a network connection .
As to caching DNS, I agree that it could significantly speed up the
loading of certain websites. I'm going to try installing dnsmasq and see
how it works out for me.
