+1, customizing configuration is really not a big deal at all. Many of our
default configurations are customized in some way.

-1, code changes are allowed and should remain so. We already have the
WhyUpstream page providing some guidance on what kind of changes are
reasonable. How to actually handle this should be the maintainer's call, it
really depends on the package, and also on the nature of the individual
change (e.g. making some program work with PulseAudio is definitely worth
patching).
