Apparently I've gone long enough between pulls to not have seen that change
(and your previous mention failed to register). As for "easier than
recompiling", my ratio of "recompiles because I decided to change my color
scheme" to "recompiles because of a new release or interest in checking out
tip" is small enough that I'm confused as to how easiness comes in. It's not
as though compiled defaults and interposing a script are incompatible on a
multiuser system.

Meh, I can't really think of a particularly compelling reason to put config.h
back in, but from the perspective of someone who was using it, its removal
feels strange and arbitrary and a bit like someone insisting that I get out of
bed at some early hour on a weekend.
