Ok, I have updated this (and followed carefully the discussion triggered

As I said before, the application does not read the configuration from
/etc. Thus, there's no point in putting it there.

Just sent them. Two of these patches have been discarded (comments on
the patches description). I didn't received any feedback on the other
ones, so I would assume they have been queued.
Note that there is no mailing list for this project, so I can not add
reference on the description. Eventually, once patches are merged, I
can refer either to the CVS commit or to the cvsweb URL.
