IMO the better option would be to just ship a binder in /etc/dnsmasq.d/

dnsmasq is a personal dns caching service. I doubt if anyone is using it
as a bind replacement.

By shipping a dnsmasq sub conf file (and making it bind to loopback
only), you eliminate the need to track the list of virtual bridges.
Then, you also don't need to spawn off your own dnsmasq proc from the
lxc init script.
