We should avoid making it unnecessarily difficult, though.

Ah, yes. IMHO, in case I've left anyone confused, is that this is a good reason for not putting anything into /etc/skel, unless there are really heavy arguments for it. It's better to find other solutions to the problems, especially by adding global configuration file support to programs. -- Please read <http://www.iki.fi/liw/mail-to-lasu.html> before mailing me.
