This would make it easier for configuration packages (like Holo
packages or <https://config.parabola.nu/> /
<https://git.parabola.nu/server/config.git/>) to add bits to their

- As someone involved in Holo, which works best with modular config
files, that is appealing to me.
One of the few things that I like more than writing code is deleting
code. And it would let me phase-out and delete the
On one hand, we don't like unnecessarily modifying the default
configuration files from upstream; but we're patching makepkg anyway;
and we are the single source of truth for the default pacman & makepkg
configs on Parabola.
