I rather have to disagree. *.example files and other
documentation-related goodies in my /etc directory annoy me, but a
well-commented config file with some reasonable defaults is a dream to
work with. A few interesting *.example files under /usr/share/doc would
be spiffy.

I know every once in a while you get complaints from a user who
inattentively clobbered something vital. Just remember that the ones you
notice are the screaming minority.
