Oof.  This misses the (common) case where an upgrade adds a service I 
don't want.  I didn't remove it because I was unaware of it before.

I'm somewhat fond of the way portage handles this (or, at least, is 
supposed to): modify an example configuration file which is used for 
reference only.  /etc/make.conf, for example, is never touched; 
upgrading portage modifies /etc/make.conf.example.
