Yes, that would help. I think 'rpm' keeps modified config files
with the .rpmsave suffix, but currently you still have to merge
the two (old and new) config files.

Even logwatch itself has that issue :-). Parameters Service and
LogFile, for example, are cummulative, while most others are not.
This has an effect on the question above with user overrides
(should the user-specified Service and LogFile override or
add to the shipped default?)
