The hardcoded "bingo" farm was just because we hadn't implemented
collectives or megaconglomerates yet. The way you have proposed it
sounds good to me. :)

The reason we want to avoid command-line args altogether is so that
we remain portable. Ideally the entire input to flood can be a
generated XML that works on windows and unix, and can be generated
from generic UI's.
