Would it be a nice feature add to possibly keep the config.xml file
'readily' accessible in a location other than on the physical storage
medium? Kind of like how the Linux kernel allows you to access the
.config file that created it by zcat'ting the /proc/config.gz pseudo file?
It would surely help in situations like Guy's...
I generally download my client's CURRENT config.xml to a local drive
that is included in my nightly tape backups when ever I make even the
smallest change, but the option might be helpful to some - or even me
when I am on-site somewhere without access to my system(s). :)
Just a thought.
