Thanks for the pointer, though for my needs that's still
significantly larger and more featureful than I need.

I'm not an enormous fan of using environment variables like this.
I don't want to create some wrapper script setting variables each
time I run it; it just seems too cumbersome to me.

Anyway, I've written some nice little config parsing based on cls'
suggestion, which I think is lovely, and I'll endeavour to share
with the list tomorrow.
