   Um, should _res be exported to user programs?!  I think not.  That's a
   private structure internal to the resolver.
   bumping libc's major is a ... hairy idea.
   ...unless it's only exposed to programs that link w/ libresolv.  bumping
   that one is okay, I think... but this issue must be examined very carefully.

whether it is good or bad, _res is an exported symbol of libresolv.
