Do you know why dnspython doesn't just fall back to socket.getaddrinfo
if it can't parse /etc/resolv.conf [or maybe why python applications
using dnspython don't fall back to that if dnspython fails?]

That seems like the right default unless you really, really need to talk
to a full-fledged DNS server directly.
