Hi Schlomo,

since most files in /etc/sysconfig give basic configuration, I would not
drop local.conf or site.conf for it. Maybe it could replace
default.conf, or the basic files /etc/rear/Linux-${ARCH}.conf.
Therefore, I'd suggest that it is read first, and /etc/rear/*.conf

When using as an additional file - what should be configured there?
