Yep. unopkg.
Besides that, every extension packages has it referenced in its unopkg call...

reportbug? Mever seen that to be honest...

I don't think this is serious, since it's not a config which is supposed
to be edited by the user (same like bootstraprc etc. and those simply can't

because then everything can break in a big boom or subtile.
