The code I am using is
cfgstr = xtryasprintf ("nameserver %s\n"
"options adns_tormode adns_sockscred:%s",
ret = adns_init_strcfg (r_state, adns_if_debug /*adns_if_noerrprint*/,
thus it would be easy to adjust.

The reason I added explicit Tor options is to make it crystal-clear that
the intention is to use Tor and nothing else. There are not many ADNS
users on Debian and thus I doubt that system wide changes of resolv.conf
are very useful.

Die Gedanken sind frei. Ausnahmen regelt ein Bundesgesetz.
