I think there's way too much paranoia about software systems putting
stuff into /etc.  It intended to contain host-specific configuration data
I think there's value in having this configuration data in one or very
few places so you're not chasing stuff all over the file system.

I think that /etc/X11 which came along with the XFree86 4 port is a
step in the right direction, too.  Frankly, I'd rather have an /etc/local
than /usr/local/etc for that sort configuration data so that it's in
one place, and backed up along with the rest of the hosts's configuration.
