Taking it a bit further, we can even ship settings.php.example,  under
local/default, with instructions to rename it to settings.php and edit
its content.

This way again, we can overwrite the .example file everytime without
affecting the local changes.

This way, there is no need for a sites directory under drupal/core at all.
