While I second the "copy only if..." rule, I don't understand why
the default file should be named ".sgreprc". The result of the
copy has no leading dot, has it?
The other problem is that files with leading dot are not visible with
`ls' by default. Giving it a name in the default dir, which makes it
visible, isn't a bad idea, IMHO.
I just don't think /etc/defaults/etc is the right place for the file.
