The current implementation (ie one biug file) is problematic during
replicating just because we update all the entryCSN/entryUUID : that
means everything get replicated...

The idea of multiple files for config is to avoid having to replicate
everything, but just updating the entryCSN of the modified entries and
only those.

So with respect to this constraint, I'd say that we should be careful
not to update anything that hasn't be changed, which might require some
extra work...

Thanks !
