Are you sure?   I split my setup in little independent files:

aliases.conf     groups.conf       services.conf
apt.conf         inputrc.conf      site.conf
bashrc.conf      issue.conf        stopdaemons.conf
bootmsgs.conf    less.conf         strategies.conf
cd.conf          mc.conf           syslog.conf
cfagent.conf     motd.conf         sysrq.conf
cfservd.conf     mountpoints.conf  tcptimestamps.conf
control.conf     movehome.conf     tcpwrapper.conf
ctrlaltdel.conf  moveopt.conf      tidy.conf
CVS/             network.conf      timezone.conf
.cvsignore       nfs.conf          update.conf
devpts.conf      path.conf         xterm.conf
dircolors.conf   prompt.conf
disable.conf     rclocal.conf

I could easily share some of them.
