Just to make this clear, we're not talking about removing these from
the source distribution. We're just suggesting not to install them
(via a 'make install' from toplevel) and further clutter unnecessarily
the /conf (or /etc) directory with these files.

I've seen strong support for not installing these files. A
clarification on your strong support would help here Paul.
