Re: overlays and config parsing

In some cases, it may be useful that overlays see configuration directivesSeems safe for now, but this behavior won't translate into back-config
since database and overlay configuration is segregated to their own
entries. Also, overlays are meant to be generic; overriding as you
suggest means the overlay recognizes the specific database it's used
with and only works with specific types. Not a problem, but something to
__before__ the database, to allow intercepting and overriding them.
Directives ignored by the overlays would get to the database anyway; the
specific overlay may allow the directive to eventually get to the
database, maybe changed as appropriate.
