I think this behaviour is not really helpful - for those folks who roam (and those are primary
users of dnssec-trigger, right?) it may incidentally resolve using not-expected domain.

it better be either option during install ("Do you want to use search path X.Y.Z?") or disabled.

At least there should be a warning during installation (just displaying recorded setting is ok.)
