I'm already aware of the examples, and these are good, but I'm more
talking about an empty framework for configuration.

It'd also be nice to
have an extension that indicates what kind of files they are, instead of a
prefix.  I'd suggest .cfa (for .cfagent, which AFAIK is the interpreter).

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.

Oh, I agree. This is just to regularise the "standard" installation, not to make anyone do anything different than what they're already doing.

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).

That would probably clear up some of the other confusion going around. Good idea. I'd say leave it as .conf.
