What I have in mind for the base system is whether to clone it from hg
or to rsync it. Configuration files under version control /rsync
master that need local editing would be provided in a suckless-like
fashion with the .def extension, eg /etc/fstab.def, /etc/passwd.def.
Using this approach the updates don't affect the existing
configuration files, and the user can upgrade/merge them when it is
appropriate or necessary.
