I don't really agree. I think the reason you see a number of RedHat
employees agreeing that this is important is because there are real
issues their enterprise customers want addressed that is either directly
or indirectly negatively affected by this more fundamental issue.
Ah. Well that is understandable. They certainly have a point of view which
not yet had the honor of.
Might I make a suggestion to anyone considerinf "fixing" this. I would
suggest the use of virtual files. So for example, program-foo which uses
program-foo.conf could attempt to read/parse/saveto program-foo.conf which
could be actually a virtual file serving as a front end to a system which
handles everything else.
