then you have to deal with left over files (*.dpkg-old, etc...) which if
not removed will cause duplication in menus and KDE doesn't like duplication.
I'll attempt this one more time.  The last time I tried this it caused alot
of problems unrelated to the Debian conffile bits.

just moving the files into /etc doesn't make them conffiles.
