I think the issue can be addressed by a finer file classification.
It seems to me its a classical case of not-enough-information.
1. data/exec files
2. default/generated config files
3. _user_modified_ config files
The whole issue seem to be caused by the fact we do not distinguish
between 2 and 3.
For instance i believe we should clearly remove 2 and keep 3.
And by the way i tend to agree with Herbert on the
