I've never seen it either.

But I've seen many instances of the following:
- A knowledgeable DD write about "conffiles"
- a newbie writing "yes but my configuration files"
- Then the DD writing "I really meant conffiles, not configuration file"

As Jakub wrote: search for "conffiles" in the -mentors list, and I guess you'll see.

So this *is* a confusing word which I don't like.
