Sorry for the intrusion, but I might be interested in this. I don't quite
understand how it can be hard to set it to be a config option while it's
fairly simple to change the sources. With the appropriate info, I would be
happy to write a patch so you don't have to worry about doing it yourself
and you can include in 1.0. If you agree, obviously.
