As I wrote to you *already*, the place where to put such
default configuration to keep it from being overwritten
is /usr/share/doc/<$package>/examples.

Many packages are doing this, for example:
/usr/share/php5/php.ini-production (which is the exact same
file as /etc/php5/apache/apache2/php.ini).

I'm ok with discussing things, but you are repeating
yourself, and forcing others to do the same. That's
annoying and not moving to the right direction.
