On 30-Aug-98 Kimmo Suominen spoke unto us all:
#  I'd just really hate the idea of packages modifying my /etc/rc.local at
#  any point.  I keep it in RCS, which they cannot know, and I don't think
#  you can always just simply append to it (dependencies won't be right).

True.. I personally wouldn't let it near my system either.. but the idea is to
have a separate utility/command that does the work only if you tell it to.  

so you would do:
pkg_add foo-1.3
pkg_setup foo-1.3

If you don't want it messing with your stuff.. then just do it by hand.. (which
is what we do now anyway, and alot of us would prefer)  This is more designed
for Joe Random who probably doesn't use RCS.. ;)
