I want to be abble to provide good defaults in packages I distribute.
Distributing!= Configuring, not the same persons, not the sale
business.I don't think my usecase is so isolated. Think for example
about people embedding their couchdb but still want to set this path
in a common place, without allowing configuration. With current way i
can't do it without previously patch the ini file. for me this path is
like setting a socket path. This is setting something that could be
use by external applications. So something that need in my opinion
some grunlarity in packaging.

Now rather than discussing , I think we need a vote on this.
