My hope was a normal user doesn't manipulate the config files we might
want to change. E.g. as long as you edit /etc/rc.conf and /etc/resolv.conf
and maybe some more files with special "---- add your config after this line ---"
wrappers, we can handle all the cases directly. If the user does change
some files, she should get some support from the system to decide what
has changed and wether she is interested.

I currently don't have to time to write it myself, more than enough on the
TODO list.
