If the other suggestions do not help:

In cfgmaker look for the place saying "comment out the target lines".

Maybe change it in something like

   if ($target_lines && not $if_ok) # comment out the target lines if needed
      $target_lines =~ s/^/\# /gm;

   if ($if_ok) {
      $conf .= ($head_lines
            . $problem_lines
            . $target_lines
            . $separator_lines);

Just two lines added, easy to test, seems to work for me.

Of course this hack needs to be configurable would it ever have
a chance to make it into the distribution.
