I think we should  have one configuration file (~/.rcs-buildpackage.conf
maybe?)   and if  needed another  configuration files  for  specific RCS
options. The  latter would override the former  settings.  Choosing this
approach means  that we  should have common  options, I haven't  had the
time yet to  check whether the different *-buildpackage  tools share the
same options.  But  I think it shouldn't be so  complicated to patch the
different tools  for using the configuration file  mentioned above. What
do you think?
