"*.config" or "*.xconfig" - who cares after several martinis[1]? :-D .

But, Nils is correct - one must always the x factor in the configuration.

[1]  If you REALLY want to get plastered then you need to try a martini 
called El Presidente. Two of those should see you thru till the next 
morning :-) . A friend and I drank 6 of them one evening, and I drove 
home with 1 covered and even then I drove between the 2 roads I was 
looking at; and the bed flew around the world several times before I 
fell asleep. Made with 50% Gin, 50% Vermouth (dry or sweet; dry, use an 
olive, sweet, use a cherry) and with a dash of Curacao, served in a 
chilled martini glass. (A real LO. NO need to add no rohypnol stuff.) 
See http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Vermouth .


You can always count on Americans to do the right thing - after they've tried everything else.
