Files in /etc aren't really a problem, IMHO. Better to have them
there than scattered all over the filesystem. I do think, however,
that some standardization of these filenames should exist. :)

Several daemons, etc. have <whatever>.conf, and module utils use
conf.modules (I have hacked the module utils to use modules.conf
because I'm an anal-retentive smart*ss, but that's beside the point).

Possibly a /etc/java.conf to set up all the paths, etc. for Java.
'course someone will have to make a patch to the Java interpreter
source to make it use the info in that file...
