well, it would be nice to have a recursive DNS component independent of
dnsmasq because I hate counting on external servers unless there is no
other alternative. On the other hand, I am just using openDNS as my
external name servers and that certainly works fine... usually.

For the simplicity, dnsmasq definitely wins.
