It's much more powerful than a single variable because you can have it
do *anything*.

But since most people don't care about that power, resolvconf is a much
better method to use to manage resolv.conf than chattr or any of the
other hacks. It does the right thing in almost every case and has hooks
for dhclient, NetworkManger, pppd, ifupdown, dnsmasq, etc.
