I'm sure I'm missing something here (pointers?), but I was wondering
if anyone else had tried what I've done, which is to adapt the
`mergemaster' skr1pt, used to update /etc and related k0deZ after
a system upgrade with FreeBSD, to semi-automatedly merge updated
config files into the installed ones?

Works great for me in NetBSD, and I'd be happy to share my hacks/
enhancements if there's interest...
