All those examples don't use the auto-grab feature.  Most of the file names 
don't end with .conf, and the one that does is a sample ntp.conf that could 
be better placed up a level.

Is anybody actually using it?  If not, why?  Is it really useful? Do we think 
it will make life easier for packagers/distros?


Do we need something like a hints-for-packagers document?


I'm not using it because I don't see how it will help.  Thus I'm not helping 
to test it.  Maybe I just missed a good example in email.

These are my opinions.  I hate spam.
