So am I to understand that when they are packaging the config files they are
just not packaging them correctly?  Because many of my config files get
overwritten without asking me anything when I do an opkg upgrade.

So they just need to fix the way they are packaging them?

Specifically, the one that comes to mind right now is 89qtopia because of
the gsm mux enhancement.
