i suspect that there are many corners of the glibc code base which simply lack 
an interested maintainer, and the resolver falls into that.  people look at it 
when there are bugs, or there is a specific feature missing, but otherwise 
languishes.  if someone (like you perhaps?) decided to champion it, i bet most 
people would be more than happy to let you do so.
