Yes, there is some conflict here.  Unfortunately the path /etc/rc.conf
has now been picked up by Arch Linux for all configuration (sigh):


In their case it's meant to be fully bash-compatible according to
rc.conf(5).  When /etc/rc.conf was originally added to Shellvars
upstream, the same was probably assumed for FreeBSD.  I assume the
quotes are just for style, or are they required for parsing?

I'd be hesitant to suggest changing back to the rcconf.aug lens, even
though it was here first, due to Arch and that we've started to use
Shellvars now.  This means you'd need to update resources to add the
quotes explicitly, or that Steve patched the FreeBSD port to keep the
rcconf.aug lens instead of upstream's Shellvars (which could get confusing).

What do you think?

This matches what should be back in the next Augeas release, and how
0.8.1/0.9.0 both behaved.
