How about keeping it under /usr/local/airstrike and symlink it under
debian to /etc? That way it would be backed up or uninstalled with
the rest of airstrike.

Depends on the config files. If the logic is "read the first you find",
it should be user's config file first, if all of them are read, the
global one should be read first.

So do I think. But maybe an command line option could be specified to
use a certain config file, so you can try things out easily.
