After reading some of the other posts, I remembered something that has
often come up, which I would use extensively if it existed :

Some automatic cache/copies of all %config files installed, with all
untouched versions always available. This would be very useful with
some simple tool to diff the current files(s) wit the backup(s), as
well as list all locally changed %config files. A sysadmin's dream come
true :-)
