The "proper tool" for this would be to have the important files in
/etc inside a decent revision control system, where you could then
just merge from an external branch with the pristine files in it.

Of course, this requires a RCS that has good merge handling; I know hg
has some fans here, and I've grown rather fond of bzr.  Implementing
such a system is left as an exercise to the reader   8-}
