I'm going to put my foot dangerously close to my mouth here, as I'm away 
from my debian system, but...  I think that nslookup will work on a 
system with only /etc/hostname lookup, right?  If so, I think that the 
DNS utils should probably get folded in with the runtime package that has 
the resolver library and /etc/resolv.conf.

Otherwise, it's a great idea, and the implementation details are of 
secondary concern ;)
