Fully agreed.  I have always admired conf.d directories which reduce the
pain of merging configuration files after dist-upgrades and checking each
and every setting.  I thought and would have hoped this was true for PHP

With regards to this, and since I run into similar problems with
different applications every once in a while, 24 minutes seem to
be rather low.  60 minutes are better, sometimes a couple of hours
are required, but that's a different story.
