I just don't understand the logic behind this Debian/Ubuntu-specific 
setup. On a bone-headed Slackware server, I just edit a line in 
/etc/resolv.conf, and that's it. No restarting anything.

On Debian versions prior to Squeeze (Potato, Woody, Sarge, ...) one 
could invoke '/etc/init.d/networking restart' *without* being kicked out 
from the remote session.

Usually, when there's a *DO NOT EDIT THIS BY HAND* in a configuration 
file, that's a bad omen. I just cringe at the idea of having to reboot a 
server just after editing resolv.conf. But then, no distro's perfect.
