Terry, what do you think about the /etc/daemons/ suggestion? and the
other things about logging, user access file and so on?
I think it's a bad idea to move to per program configuration
files. I am reminded of "*.INI" in Windows 3.11.
I also think it's bad to put things under /etc, since I think
/etc should be read-only. I think that eventually, we will
see all such things live under /var.
I think it's an especially bad idea to put configuration data
into files in subdirectories of /etc. I wouldn't have sent the
configuration patches to the bind 9 folks, if I liked the
factory defaults. 8-).
I just wish that "flash" had caught on more, when the limiting
factor was the number of times that it could be written, and
the footprint of the resulting system.
