*That* I can live with!   

Has any default vs. overriding file instance discussion happened yet? 
For example: "If possible, the settings in /opt/<pkg>/etc will be
defaults while any settings in the corresponding files in
/etc/opt/<pkg>/ will take precedence and override the defaults."   I
know this is a pain to code the first time, but administrators of sites
who do export/import /opt will thank us for the effort.
