To be honest, I don't really know why smart wants to leave this choice
of freedom to the packager. I suspect this may have something to do
with other rpm distros which require a different distro.py. Or maybe a
dpkg system with a sibling rpm database.
Currently smart has three config parts, /etc/smart/channels, distro.py
and the state stored under /var. I'd prefer to have all configurable
parts in a /etc/smart hierarchy and also see enforcing of
/etc/smart/channels over the internal state (e.g. modifying
