8 I would add a more general reason which is that this kind of
9 "something.d" config files are much more invasive than others, and
10 thus should always be optional. Adding a config file in an
11 /etc/something.d is just like merging some config changes in an
12 /etc/something.conf without waiting for the user to do his
13 "etc-update". Take for instance someone who has a logrotate
14 cronjob for some of his log files, but not the apache ones because
15 for this ones he has very special needs and scripts: if his next
16 apache update blindly installs a logrotate.d file, he may not
17 appreciate it at all...
