I want to create isolated environment for guests - they will be
connected to one bridge and will use private DNS data. No single
packet from this isolated network can reach external network - this
means no 53/udp traffic to resolvers defined in host's

I'm using following dnsmasq parameters to achive this: no-hosts,
no-resolv, addn-hosts, server.
It will be nice if one could set log-queries and local-ttl also.

With my patch I'm creating config file for this network and dnsmasq
runs with --conf-file=/path/to/my/network_name-dnsmasq.conf option.
This difference *is* visible on processes list.
