I have an overwhelming preference for config files which are well commented
(and parsers which allow comments, of course -- parsers which do not, are
just plain broken IMNSHO).

Really large ones might need a "commented sample" version and a "just the
options which are actually modified" version, for sanity and ease of
understanding what was changed from defaults.

Config parsers which allow "include" statements rock even farther.
