Earlier I objected to default having a specific site. It should be the
prototype for specific sites. Thus all installs should be treated as
multisite with only one site present. This means that when you download a
new release the default setting file that comes with it does not overlay one
of your sites. So perhaps there should be another name for default, like
distributed or original.
