If you're in a bad mood, don't take it out on people on the list.

This isn't true in the slightest.  In fact, I think on balance more tools have
it configured than have it hard coded.

xinetd.conf:    includedir /etc/xinetd.d
httpd.conf:     Include conf.d/*.conf
ld.so.conf:     include ld.so.conf.d/*.conf
logrotate.conf: include /etc/logrotate.d
oddjobd.conf:   <include ignore_missing="yes">/etc/oddjobd.conf.d/*.conf</include>
prelink.conf:   -c /etc/prelink.conf.d/*.conf
profile.conf:   for i in /etc/profile.d/*.sh ; do
