In other words, it's exactly true with the current state ;) But you
have a solution.

To be honest, for me your sentence "The low-level-perms (on path) make
it impossible to configure dynamically created sysconfig files" looks
more like general statement then fact about current status of

So you can have permission for directory "/etc/sysconfig/network/"
and then you can handle all files in this directory. For me it is
still low-level operation and don't need any logic from upper
layer. We just need to ensure, that we handle correctly paths ( no
path escaping anywhere ).

That sounds good. Which also means we are back to zero: We should
grab all the pros & cons (as already started during our meeting) for
both solutions and then compare them to pick one.

Yes, I agree. I just want to have correct *general* pros/cons ( as
implementation can change, API can be modified, but permissions should
make huge difference in architecture ( and also in API )).
