14 " When a file under CONFIG_PROTECT doesn't exist yet, Portage
15 simply installs it. It would be nice to have an option (say
16 --protectforreal) that makes emerge create a .cfg_0000_* file also
17 when the destination file does not exist yet in the CONFIG_PROTECT
18 area. When first installing a system, one wouldn't want to use
19 this option, but once a system is fully installed and stable, I
20 wish to know about every change and addition in /etc."
