Before: user edits file in /etc. Package update installs new version as

After: user copies file from /usr/etc into /etc. Package update installs
new version in /usr/etc. This version is ignored because file in /etc
exists. User misses important changes.
Where exactly is difference and advantage from end-user perspective?
The idea in the long run is teaching apps to merge their config values,
similar to what systemctl edit (without --full) does.
/etc should only contain values, that deviate from system standards.
So far the theory.
