We are getting more and more places, where the different Taginfo instances
need different settings or even different code. I suggest that we create
a new config.rb in same directory as taginfo.rb and put all the settings in
there. taginfo.rb should then require that file first.
This file would not be in the distribution, just a template for it. So
everybody setting up Taginfo is forced to configure it. And there is no
chance that it gets overwritten when a new version of Taginfo comes out.
That might not be perfect and at some point we might need something better,
but its very easy to implement and "good enough" for the time being.
Any better ideas? Anybody wants to start implementing that?
