That was suggested, but I was leery of doing it since, as you mention,
there's always the chance of overwriting some existing file. Especially
since, if they use something like Puppet, it would mask the problem for
them of updating their configuration.
I would also add a README pointing out the change. Not that people
actually read but still...
