How can I share files between an OpenVZ container and its hosts?

I am running OpenVZ containers on a Proxmox/ Debian host.

There are some files (eg, /etc/resolv.conf) I'd like the container to use directly from the host.

So, is there some smart way to have /etc/resolv.conf on the container linked to /etc/resolv.conf on the host?

File /etc/resolv.conf on container 100 is also visible on the host as /var/lib/vz/private/100/etc/resolv.conf and /var/lib/vz/root/100/etc/resolv.conf (BTW, is there a difference?)

Excellent page.
Not exactly what I am looking for though: I want to link to a given file, not a complete directory.

Results so far:
-impossible to have a "live link" to a single file, but possible at the directory level
- in the case of the ..root directory: at boot-time it is copied into the ...private directory
