As backgound, the reason for this is to allow a administrator to restart 
a broken server by specifying the exact configuration set to run. 
Specifying the configs is really a disaster recovery option not meant 
for daily use.

One thing we could do is allow you to specify a file containing the 
configs - that way we could include a couple of known-good configuration 
lists in the distro making it a little easier to recover. Any patch for 
this would be appreciated.

The normal way to start a server is simply not to specify any 
configurations at all; it then starts the last-known-good config list 
(currently that's what was running when it was last shut down cleanly).
