I recognize none of above patterns in the sugar package.

Isn't this exactly what is done at the moment?

Sorry for being so thick-headed, but I still fail to understand what in 
particular is wrong with the configuration file provided by the sugar 

Could you please provide a patch?

I do not mean that I want you to take responsibility for the complete 
changes to the package, just to point out more specifically what kind of 
change you imagine might work: Alternatively you could provide an 
alternative configuration file for me to look at (and pass upstream to 
the Sugar developers).

Kind regards,
