I'm trying to evaluate IzPack for some commercial solution. I read the
doc I found, and IzPack seems really great.

But one point stays obscur: Does IzPack handles "configuration" files?
What I mean is the feature done by apt-* tools on Debian system. It's
to say, when a new version of a configuration file is available and
the installer detect that the previous version was modified since
previous installation.

I would appreciate an installer ables to detect that an installed
file, flagged "configuration", has been modified since previous
install. In this case, it would be usefull to propose to the user a
sort of merging process, or at least a simple diff.

Such feature is not describe in IzPack documentation. Is there any
"contribution" to do this?
