Patch 64:
ipa-dns-install offer IP addresses from resolv.conf as default

In non-interactive more option --auto-forwarders can be used to do the
same. --forward option can be used to supply additional IP addresses.


IMO it's perverse to add option which effectively means "use default
value" instead of actually using the value as default. This is
inconsistent with every other option and I don't see what makes
forwarders so special to require this.

NACK unless you have a strong justification for this.

Is it possible to use default_getter decorator to fetch defaults for the
'forwarders' knob from the resolver if it is avaliable like so (warning:
untested and possibly wrong)?

Yes, this is exactly how it should be used (although the exception
handling could be better).

That was just a quick example off the top of my head without much thought going into it.

Anyway, when running in interactive mode the installer can inform the user that he found these forwarders as defaults and prompt whether they shoud be used.

Patch 65:
Remove global variable dns_forwarders from ipaserver.install.dns
It seems to me that the global thingy is not necessary, so I've ripped
it out.
