Sure we can do something like this, but what shall our trigger be?

How about something like this?

if [ `use this_trigger` ] ; then
	for conf in {${PN}-${PV}-${PR},${PN}-${PV},${PN}}.config
		if [ -r /etc/${PN}/${conf} ] ; then
			cp ${conf} ${S}/.config
			break;
		fi
	done
fi

[ ! -r .config ] && make a config
.. existing stuff

post install phase

[ `use this_trigger` ] && copy .confg /etc/${PN}/${PN}.config

-----

Idea here would be fine grained config control by searching
/etc/busybox/ for

[package]-[version]-[revision].config
[package]-[version].config
[package].config 

The config would be searched for in that order and once a config is copied, 
no more attempts would be made.
