I think this is a good idea. Does anyone have any objections to me 
changing the default path? if I hear nothing, I'll assume it's OK to 
change from /etc/box to /etc/boxbackup.

You can always override this by providing a path to a specified 
configuration file on the command line of any of the tools and daemons.

Cheers, Chris.
