With the pull method, it _would_ still be done on changes.  The things
that care listen for signals from NM about when the things change, and
when they do, they pull the info out of NM.  Nothing here needs to poll
to get the info it wants.

The situation I'm trying to avoid, here, is writing 4 different backends
in NM for every single way that people want to handle their DNS
information.  1 for named, 1 for dnsmasq, 1 for /etc/resolv.conf, and 1
for resolvconf on debian/suse.  That's just pointless and I don't want
to put the new flavor of the week in NetworkManager itself.
