Hi All,

Before I go too far ahead with this, a couple of questions.  I've
noticed smbpasswd is not preserved by default across sysupgrades.  Any
particular reason why?  Similarly I intend to produce a patch to
preserve dnsmasq's new timestamp file across sysupgrades too.

The next question is how?  It looks like a few other packages create a
subdir in 'keep.d' with a file containing a list of files that should be
preserved by default.  I would anticipate creating 'samba' & 'dnsmasq'
subdirs though the package Makefiles.  A better way?
