My main concern here is that there will be a place where the number of
choices is too big. Also, you'll risk getting a higher frequency on
bug reports on such paragraphs. Think for instance bootloaders, how
would we deal with guides there? I'm sure we do not want to generate
separate guides for just all this sort of stuff (and then use
keywords)...

What about making it generic (edit your clock management configuration
like, like /etc/conf.d/hwclock on ... )?
