sure i can use my old rc.conf but I'm about to install a new system and
I don't like what I see.

There are more than 3,
1) at least 1 for loading modules in some creepy location
2) hostname
3) time
4) locale
5) fonts

At least 5 files that i have to edit in order to have the same benefit
as I had with only editing 1 file.
