Not the config files itself. But IIRC, the "main" config files have been 
changed in distros when the new style was introduced. Usually the main 
file wasn't overwritten, but a new file with an extension like "new" had 
been added.

However, my laptop installation isn't as old, and every application I 
install already has the new style, and of course it has it pros when You 
get used to the structure of the config file, but if You're new to some 
application, You also have to learn about this structure for every new 
one ...
