Ha no I wasn't even aware of the difference about this in pacman3.
I was just referring to the fact that config files edited by the user
are never overwritten by pacman, so I thought it wasn't necessary
(as soon as config files likely to be edited are in the backup section).
It can still be useful in some cases I don't see :)

Sorry about these long lines, I copied them from the current code,
