Resolvconf isn't really comparable to the update-* utilities.
Unlike them, resolvconf takes information on its standard input.
And unlike them, it run during "normal" use of the machine, not
at administration time. The update-* programs usually modify
files in /etc/, whereas one of the reasons for creating
resolvconf is to avoid modifying files in /etc/.
