We've had some of those cases recently. Most of the time, upstream
didn't provide configuration files in the past, or provided broken
configuration files which have since then been fixed.

What we should do in these cases is evaluate if switching to the
upstream configuration leads to a reasonable default configuration for
Arch, and a smooth upgrade path.

I didn't look at shadow in particular, but my guess is that their
defaults would be safe to use.
