That's a good point.  One of the reasons I was avoiding /etc was because 
it's already so cluttered.  But maybe doing something like


would keep down the clutter by moving everything out of the "main" /etc 

Come to think of it, there's already (on many systems) an /etc/sysconfig 
area... perhaps package configurations could go in there?

Thanks for the help,
