I wonder if all config file options are configurable via the command line. I run several mail archives and don't particularily like the idea to write a config file for each and every archive. Up to now I only use a few options so the current commandline arguments are sufficient for me.

However, things may changes and I wonder if there should be an option like --config "hm_foo=bar" while the argument to --config is parsed like each line in the config file.
