You are right Adam. Adding configs to ~/.pastebin.d overrides
everything, because of the "pastebind" configuration list reset. But
that's the way it is upstream. If you move this out of the outer loop
the resulting set is a merge of all configs. The attached patch contains
both changes, indention fix and config merge.
