resolver directive doesn't fallback to the system DNS resolver

Is there already a patch for this ?
I am not completely sure of how to make the nginx resolver (in ngx_resolver.c) fallback to libresolv automatically and if this not trivial enough, i just might read the resolvers from /etc/resolv.conf and provide it to the 'resolver' directive. Any suggestions ?

Yeah, I think it's better for the nginx resolver to automatically use
whatever is defined in /etc/resolv.conf when the user does not
configure the "resolver" directive in her nginx.conf.
I'm already tired of seeing all those user questions regarding the
error message "no resolver defined to resolve ..." over the years.
