The simple examples are created so new FAI users can do an
installation in about one hour (hope so). They are not meant to be perfect
to a wide range of advanced FAI users. Since every FAI sysadmin has
its own special setup, it will be difficult to make some simples
examples, that fit for most users. So keep the simple examples really
as examples and manage your config directory on your own.

Also, I can't guarantee that in a new fai version, the new simples
examples will not break your setup. That'a why they are only called
examples and not "default config files".
