Hi Hiltjo,

I just saw that you reverted my documentation on config.def.h in git in
313a5dea. I got the idea from the which was deleted in
8c03f4bd and I find it really useful. The point is that you have your
default in git and it will track your changes and conflicts. Can we add
it again, or does it need more explanation or is there a different place
to put it?

Cheers Jochen
