Nonsense.  Sometimes configs should be updated, and it's very helpful
for the vendor to offer to do that.  Since QAM is not a vendor, it
can't provide that help; I have to go find out what TRT is myself.
QAM might be a better way for *vendors* to manage these things, but I
don't use QAM so I can't judge that.

As I mentioned, Gentoo does this right (without the aid of QAM AFAIK
;-).  It took me about 15 minutes to work through 150 conffiles
updates when I got back from California and updated my system to
current.  I actually looked at about 25 (postfix, sshd, pam, a few
others), and managed 5 by hand (all from postfix, sshd).  The only
resulting problem was with postfix, which mostly was my mistake.
