Please note my last sentence. I think it would be a good idea if
the config (which is very close related to the repos) would be
dumped/loaded when the repos is dumped/loaded. Therefore I would
prefer to put it there. But of course, passing it on the command
line the admin could decide where to put it (and therewith whether it
would be dumped/loaded). Maybe it would be even better to split the
config into two parts: /path/to/repo/conf/foobar.ini would contain
stuff which is not related to a specific revision/branch like
email-adresses. /path/to/repo/conf-versioned/foobar.ini would contain
stuff which is closely related to a branch/revision like the
regression tests which need to be run. Both directories should be
dumped/loaded along with the repos.

Maybe the time has come to fill them up. I have a long list of ideas
what we could put into those files ;-)
