/usr somehwere? /usr/lib or /usr/share The idea is that you should be
able to mount /usr readonly. (readonly nfs for example)

Must be misunderstanding. /etc/conf.d is gentooism. The config options
for the init.d scripts should go into /etc/conf.d. For acf, /etc/acf is
just fine.

I think I mentioned sessions.d though. It should not go to /usr since it
needs to write data. /var somewhere. (/var/lib, /var/tmp, /var/cache)

I think useraccounts and auth roles maybe belongs to /var/lib. Its
application data (a database) for the acf app. We could put it
in /etc/for convenience so it get stored to floppy automatically with
lbu commit.
