So I just gave this a try. Already had dnsmasq installed so I just
edited the config file and restarted the NetworkManager service. Then
connected to my VPN.
It. Just. Works. Amazing! Not only does it just work for resolution,
but it also works for multiple search domains. I can ping <name> and
it'll try <name>.localdomain and I can also do <name>.<subname>
it'll find it at <name>.<subname>.workdomain. A+
