I myself would be tempted to place the templates under "./etc/" and then
the filled-in templates under "./parts/etc/", because otherwise you're
violating the practice that everything generated belongs under "parts".
I think that hiding the directory of generated conf files under "parts"
will make it much easier for newcomers to guess which file they're
supposed to edit when, say, their "debug.ini" needs to change.
