Good question, I was talking the Oracle at Delphi, but I suspect that select *

etc. feels the most right to me, but we'll wait to hear from others.

I've just popped into #sabayon and #sabayon-dev on freenode, and talked with
some of the devs there, and an /etc/sabayon or /etc/sabayon-profiles would not
conflict with anything they've got, or cause any unneccessary confusion, so
we're good on that front.
