[Resolvconf-devel] Question about implementation

I was interested in implementing something for local use similar to what you 
do with the /etc/resolvconf/run symlink linking 
to /dev/shm/resolvconf.  /dev/shm is volatile, though, isn't it?  I can't 
quite find where /dev/shm/resolvconf is set up upon a system startup.  I 
don't think it's done in /etc/init.d/resolvconf because of the following 
expression in line 56:

RUN_CANONICALDIR="$(readlink -f "$RUN_DIR")"

Because of the -f switch, a broken run symlink would elicit an empty string 
from readlink, which would cause /etc/init.d/resolvconf to exit out with an 
error message.

Hopefully I've set up my question now.  If /dev/shm is volatile, where/when 
is /dev/shm/resolvconf set up?

I'll continue digging through your package, but I thought maybe you guys might 
be able to save me some time.
