Not exactly what you're looking for, but for people who want to do
things like this, the siteXX.tgz tarball can already handle these types
of localized changes.


It's a wonderful tool that can allow you to be very creative.  Not only
does my local siteXX file contain configuration changes, it contains
pre-installed packages and updated versions of binaries from the -stable
branch.  Before a new installation is booted live for the first time, it
already contains fixes for the errata.

The downside is that it may require a bit of maintainence to keep the
tarball up to date (depending on what you include in it).
