I would sort of like to see each one (and the additional scripts that
will doubtless appear eventually for handling other /etc material)
This has a number of advantages:
- it makes it clear to passersby what each one specifically does;
- it makes it clear to passersby that the scripts are not (and will
not turn into without notice) a general /etc-munging toolkit with
unknown adverse effects;
- it makes it easy to see which package is planning to do what
things to /etc, just by checking depends;
- it makes it easier to wade in if someone needs to hack something
up to work on $BUGGIX.
The only disadvantage is that handling release stuff for two things is
a lot more work than one; however, if the scripts are going to be
maintained in pkgtools/*/files (as seems reasonable) that shouldn't
