I find wrangling a lot of small files with self-documenting names a lot easier than fighting with a one large file made larger by the number of comment lines needed to explain the role of different sections. Prior to your message, I didn't think anyone actually liked non-split configuration files for exim4 and apache. I guess it's a matter of taste, but monolithic files are certainly harder for multiple packages automatically maintain. -- Boyd Stephen Smith Jr. ,= ,-_-. =. firstname.lastname@example.org ((_/)o o(\_)) ICQ: 514984 YM/AIM: DaTwinkDaddy `-'(. .)`-' http://iguanasuicide.org/ \_/
