One question should be whether these site-specific customisations
should be compiled in or read as a configuration file. I suppose it
depends whether people are often finding new websites that they want
to set the behaviour of, or they stick to just a limited list.

I have a slight preference for a separate configuration file that is
read at runtime, as I think that would be more usable.


Oh, btw, that related email of Christoph's I referenced earlier is
