[Dnsmasq-discuss] can dnsmasq report DNS resolve time in ms?

Hello -

I'm running dnsmasq on my Ubuntu machine, and I'd like to gather 
statistics about how quickly my ISP's DNS server handles all the DNS 
queries I throw at it.  So I'd like dnsmasq to report how many 
milliseconds it takes the upstream DNS server to respond to queries.  I 
tried logging to a file, but the timestamp on each line has a 1-second 
resolution, which is not good enough since I want a count in 
milliseconds.  So I can't see any way to get this information from 
dnsmasq - is this correct?  Would you accept a patch that caused dnsmasq 
to report elapsed milliseconds on each response from a DNS server 
(possibly enabled via yet another command-line option?)
