Dotfiles in .etc

I think this feature is good and would be nice to have it in other BSDs and Linuxes. What do you think?

--"Dotfiles" in .etc--
Both MirOS and MirPorts should put most of
the "dotfiles" in users' home directories in a
single directory named ".etc". For example, ssh
uses ".etc/ssh" for its configuration files.
This greatly reduces the clutter of hundreds of
hidden files in the home directory. All of the base
system uses this convention, but at the moment,
only a few ports do.
