[Exherbo-dev] sydbox-1 configuration file name change

Hello fellow goats,

I have implemented a simple configuration file naming scheme for
sydbox-1 with sydbox-1.git commit 7697636[1]:

config: simple configuration file naming scheme

The filename extension of a configuration file *must* start with ".syd-"
followed by the magic command API version. For sydbox-1 the magic
command API version starts from number 1 (which is the loneliest number
that you'll ever know). The current magic command API version is 1.

For profiles both -c @profile and -c @profile.syd-1 is supported. The
former defaults to the current profile.

Thus, `/usr/share/sydbox/paludis' is renamed to `/usr/share/sydbox/paludis.syd-1'
Paludis[2] invokes sydbox-1 with "--profile paludis" which is the backwards
compatible version of "-c @paludis" so this file name change should be seamless.

P.S: Feel free to commit fixes to sydbox-1.git in case this change kills your goats.
P.P.S: I may or may not share a bottle of vodka with you in case you do.
P.P.P.S: Chess makes alip a non-slacker.
