I wholeheartedly agree with this. When a system administrator tries to
get an overview of system changes or upgrades, there is just too much
noise in /etc. As an effect of this, I have had to special-case Gnome
files in /etc in the changetrack package so that these files are
ignored, which is obviously not ideal.
