"Cooperative duos". Picking systemd as my example:
systemd itself cannot offer defaults to start arbitrary programs, because
arbitrary programs live at arbitrary paths; it has to rely on another package

Consequently, systemd needs to read *two kinds* of files, namely the *vendor

Except the systemd configuration files, such as
"/etc/systemd/journald.conf", which have a single copy.
There are always configuation files, which you have to copy as whole.
E.g. PAM configuration files, or configuration files using xml or json.
But this are the exceptions.
And there are libraries, which can do already today what systemd is
doing. In go, it took me some minutes to teach an application to
read the configuration the systemd way.
