You do realize that the only difference between the two cases is that
when the default happens to be in /etc, you get a "Configuration file
updated" thing scroll by?
Other than that, things break exactly the same way, and you will have no
more information, and the one you have is of little use, as it happily
overwrote the unmodified default, so you'll have to hunt down the former
version anyway, to see the difference.
