The question is: what do we define as a virgin system? The contents
of etc.tgz only have parts of that, our default installation creates
a few more files "on the fly" and touches some of the existing ones.
I consider that part of a default install.

I bet etcupdate does not delete /etc/resolv.conf for example, but this
is kindof a provocative stretch.

What I meant is: some changes to /etc/ttys are special and need special
treatement by etcupdate - on/off, speed changes for serial devices, maybe
more should never be merged.
