    I considered it, but it isn't very user friendly to have to
    have your config files spread out all over the place.   The most
    likely scenario for a DragonFly user is going to be a couple of
    configs for a virtual kernel architectures, a few for IA32 (UP and
    SMP), and ultimately a few for IA64.  I think it makes a lot more
    sense for those files to be in one place.  Also, having to specify
    the machine architecture in the config file AND put the config file
    in a special architecture-specific place is kinda redundant.
