No, not SubVersion config files, config files for your application. Code your
application to read the relevant data out of a config file instead of
compiling the data into the application. Say your application reads foo.ini
to get the database name, etc. Then you can add a customer1.ini,
customer2.ini, ... and just rename the one you want to foo.ini. Simple as
that.
