A better solution would be to mark config files in PLISTs, and do
something sane with the files then. (Like: assume it's installed as a
example-rc, and copy over to the final location if there's no file already
there; maybe do some tricky merging if there's already a config file
present; maybe preserve the config file on removal of the package, if the
file was changed; See RPM...)
