one thing i wonder is how to be sure it's the original configuration
file?  whatever is there when the CDD gets installed?  can we compare
against the package's configuration file somehow?

what if we have multiple CDDs on one machine- one CDD may see the other
CDD's configuration file as the "original".

it might be good, though maybe complicated, to provide CDDs with some
mechanism to know if it's a CDD-tweaked configuration file... something
similar to dpkg-diversions(at least in concept, i have no idea how it is

live well,
