I think there has been an unspoken assumption that having a configuration
utility excludes having a user-modifiable Config.hs file.  If the
utility generates a fresh Config.hs instead of modifying an existing
one, you get the best of both worlds.  The user would have the choice of
using the generated file, modifying the generated file or using a file
that came from another source.


Do not spoil what you have by desiring what you have not; remember that what 
you now have was once among the things you only hoped for.
