The dev did in fact rename the 'config.py' file to 'config.py.example';
anyway, note that the slackbuild will install this file as
'/etc/r2e/config.py.new' if an '/etc/r2e/config.py' pre-exists.

So, regardless of the source file's name, the slackbuild won't overwrite
any config files that might be in use.
