that minimal, but we get back to the idea that topic branches which
change configs would need to sit on top of the topic with this config.
Perhaps that is something we can live with if a
directory-of-config-fragments approach is deemed undesirable.

other LTs are reading. (Probably a bit late to change it now and get
