------- Additional Comments From bdubbs at linuxfromscratch.org  2005-08-27 00:34 -------
The reason to put configuration files in /opt/kde/etc is to support installation
of multiple versions.  There are two ways to think about this.  A user may want
to keep a single set of configuration files for all versions or separate the
config files for each version.  If a new version is not backward compatible for
these files, having all versions use the same directory would be a problem.

The fisrt note will be in kdelibs.  That note could be expanded to offer more
guidance.

As an aside, I have a total of seven config files in the kde/etc/ hierarchy and
I've never felt the need to change any of them.
