Conffile changes are, IMO, more natural than having to twiddle with
permsision overrides. I think what we currently do is just fine, and
that the manual intervention to allow external commands is the right
thing to do.

One alternative would be to ship with external commands enabled by
default. I am not sure about the security implications.
