blacklist.txt seems like a conf file to me.

Install it as blacklist.txt.sample and either

1. ouput a ui_msg that tells the person to copy blacklist.txt.sample  
to blacklist.txt


2. in post-activate check to see if blacklist.txt exists, if not copy  
blacklist.txt.sample to blacklist.txt

Do this for each of the files.

squid does this for squid.conf and mime.conf, so you can look there if  
you want to see an example.
