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.
