Having some config read for RH based, maybe someone else wants the same
facility for Debian/Ubuntu/sidux, someone else for Slackware, and
another one for FreeBSD.
Now we have 4 different config readers in the mainstream. All of them
should be maintained stable and tested, and 3 out of 4 of them are
completely useless in any distro.
Being LXDE oriented toward "small and efficient" software, I consider
this as code bloat.
If there is a FHS or a freedesktop.org specification for that, that
should be implemented. Lacking that, only the base config should be used
mainstream, and distro-specific code should be added by distro
maintainers as distro-patches.
