Need Feedback for Add'l Directives for RPM Conf

Hey, guys. I'm about to roll the updated RPMs for the recent release of
OpenDKIM 2.7.4, and as luck would have it, I'm also setting up a brand new
mail server.

I used yum to install OpenDKIM on the new server, and when comparing the
default opendkim.conf file to the one on an existing mail server in our
network, I noticed these additional directives on the old server that I'm
not currently including in the default conf in the RPM:

# Custom Directives
AutoRestart Yes
AutoRestartRate 10/1h
SignatureAlgorithm rsa-sha256
TemporaryDirectory /var/tmp

I'm thinking I should include all four of these in the RPM's default conf
file, but comment out both the AutoRestart ones (so that users can make
sure everything's working OK before allowing AutoRestart to spawn multiple
instances... which I've done when things are misconfigured during testing).
