Oh certainly! But ultimately, this amounts to making *everything* a
configuration option, doesn't it? I mean, some sysadmin might want to
hexedit ls to behave a little differently; isn't it good to "give the
sysadmin the choice", and thus mark it a conffile?

The real issue, of course, is whether they should be forced to be
conffiles. Obviously some must be conffiles.
