like all upgrade procedures, some sensible user interaction would be
required. one of the goals of my proposal is that I can do
diff /usr/src/etc/default /etc/default |less
and manually examine the changes to the defaults and take appropriate
action in my /etc/rc.conf (et al) before i actually manually copy
/usr/src/etc/default/* to /etc/default/.
