  Modified files:
    usr.sbin/config      configvers.h 
  Add some rationale about when to bump and not bump the config version.
  Clarify that it is not like the shlib versions, and not like param.h's
  __FreeBSD_version/osreldate either.
  When config(8) was actively changing a while back, the interface between
  config and the build system (eg: /sys/conf/files.* and Makefile.*) was
  changing rapidly.  configvers is a version number of that interface.
  User specified config files do not have a version number.  The decision
  about whether a user supplied config file is syntactically valid or not
  belongs to the parser and sanity checks, not an arbitary number.
