We may want to fix this along with

a while back but that got delayed by me.

Liam, do you need this prior to ussuri?

  Groups of swift daemons are all forced to use the same config

Status in swift package in Ubuntu:

Bug description:
  On swift storage servers there are three groups of services: account,
  container and object.

  Each of these groups is comprised of a number of services, for
  instance: server, auditor, replicator etc

  Each service has its own init script but all the services in a group
  are configured to use the same group config file eg swift-account,
  swift-account-auditor, swift-account-reaper & swift-account-replicator
  all use /etc/swift/account-server.conf.

  Obviously this causes a problem when different services need different config. In the case of a swift cluster performing global replication the replication server need "
  replication_server = true" where as the auditor needs "replication_server = false"
