Has my proposal been implemented in the Emacs 21, or taken into 
consideration, where a centralized control for all configuration files
were possible? Having aneed to configure each package separately
is not the best idea, especially when they store file directly
under $HOME/.something. It would be more polite to have a prefix
for all files, which user could then chnage (e.g due to version control).
