	Sure. Autoloads don't count as configuration in my book
 either. If that's all you need, then putting the script outside of
 /etc is fine. 

	But load-path modifications are indeed configuration issues,
 as are setting variables at startup. Or creating derived modes on the
 fly. Or any of the various and sundry things site-start.d scripts do.
