Well, ok, it's everyone's own decision what to enforce on the world ;-)
OTOH I'm sure you will not find any reasonable Unix software packager
who will agree with you in placing such a database file under etc/.
Hence, at least for OpenPKG's "ratbox" package I'll keep this patch
hunk. But I'm wondering what files _you_ would store under var/?
