I don't see the problem. FSSTND already addresses this very well.

3.Have the config files in /usr/etc, search _only_ in /etc, make symlinks.
This is what FSSTND proposes. This also lets us put the real files in
/usr/share/etc or /usr/local/etc; symlinks are easy. And dpkg can handle
this, I believe.
