The problem is that the "standard" configuration is set at configure
time, so those who use /usr/local/etc/ctdb/ then wouldn't be able to use
this out of the box.

That's also why I made the script refused to overwrite without the -f
option.  It is quite safe to use in-place.

However, you're right.  It is still dodgy implied behaviour.  :-)

So, how about the attached fixup?  It still defaults to writing the
files in-place, but provides an option to put the output directory
somewhere else.  I think this is better.

peace & happiness,
