It flags alarms, it is obscure, and generally it is bad form to have hidden
files anywhere but under user homes anyway.  There certainly is no excuse to
have anything hidden inside the system hierarchies, you WANT to easily know
what is there.

Please consider this email as a second request that those files be renamed
to something without a leading dot.
