I agree absolutely.  I was a bit disappointed when it happened to make.conf;  
because I really liked, for example, the list of allowed -march settings.  
And I think that you will scare users (especially the genkernel type) if you 
let them write their fstab completely by hand.

Of course, they wouldn't really need to write it by themselves, because they'd 
have some .example files.  But I strongly dislike the idea of putting them 
inside /etc.

     Tim.
