xs-config - improve the configuration mechanism, fix updates

Description

current xs-config uses a nasty symlink scheme to install its configuration. This breaks configs on rpm-driven updates, leading to major inconvenience to our early adopters.

See notes in #7671

And we have updated packages for this. See the discussion in the ML and help test!

The new scheme to manage /etc is described in:

  • Resolution set to fixed
  • Status changed from assigned to closed

After much work and testing, looks done.

Probably the main "feature" in xs-0.4: a sane configuration scheme!
