DRBDManage is EoL and only gets bug fixes, so don't expect any new
commands (like import-config).

Usually there is no need, okay this pops up every 9 months or so, but if
it is something you want to set for all (including new resources), you
can use the "--common" flag. If you need to script, "modify-config"
honors the EDITOR env variable, and "$1" is the name of a temporary file
you can then modify, guess you get the idea.
