I think most folks use a 'cf.' prefix for imported config files and a '.conf' 
for configs that the agent itself knows to look for.

A cfengine suffix would be nice from a syntax-highlighting standpoint too.  I 
would assert that it is important to make such an animal optional.

I'd also recommend a different suffix for the cfservd.conf file, if we are 
going to do this (as cfa seems to imply cfAgent).
