I would be okay with this change. Currently, interface-automatic: is no
to comply with the policy of not starting servers without user consent,
but if we are making unboudn the default, this indeed makes sense, and
we should just configure unbound with localhost ACL's but let it listen
on all interfaces. Thanks for this suggestion.

This might be a problem indeed, especially with KVM/virt-manager and
dnsmasq instances that run on vnet* interfaces. I don't know of a
solution for this, as dnsmasq is needed for DHCP. Perhaps we could tell
dnsmasq to forward all DNS to However, that would expose
host DNS changes to the guests. Which I think is okay?
