To save (some) hassle, when doing a full intall (not an update) on an existing 
install, what if the install program were to find and save, if they exist, a 
number of config files and directories and reuse them ?
I am thinking specially of

and some directories like 
           Everything you've learned in school as "obvious" becomes
          less and less obvious as you begin to study the universe.
              For example, there are no solids in the universe.
                  There's not even a suggestion of a solid.
                      There are no absolute continuums.
                            There are no surfaces.
                         There are no straight lines.
