Default configuration file will provide the same values that are currently
hardcoded into dpkg-cross, so ease of usage will not suffer. We may even
implement "include" statement for config file, and split such "base"
setting into a separate file. By the way, user-provided config file will
not replace system config file in this case, but will just be included
But we will get great advantages:
- - it will be 100% clear what variables are being set, and what values they
get. No longer (citing your message) "nobudy really know which ones are
- - dpkg-cross code itself will become cleaner.
I just tried to implement 'unset' feature, and disliked the result. I
really want to unify variable setting first. I probably will try to do
that, and show you the result (without committing anything). I hope you'll
like it :).
