But beware second system effect.  Don't do too much.  And don't forget
that even though there are some problems with the current system (mostly
having to do with learning curve), it does work.  Lastly, try not to put
too much policy into X when it comes to file naming and hierarchy;
instead give a recommendation (preferably one the autoconfigurator
itself can optionally follow) and let the user/distributor do whatever
he/she/it wills.
