Um, I'll take your word for it, all I could find in the policy-manual
was the sentence.
"A package may not modify a configuration file of another package."

that this wasn't really a problem as long as the user(=root) agrees,
and after all how could you package linuxconf otherwise.

Oh Well, One problem solved...
