    I don't see a reason -not- to have this option (besides the pain staking parsing of each --config option that has to be made), except, how many people would actually benefit from this? I can see it coming in handy yes, but at the same time, what's wrong with having one generic config file, and reference that file each time (instead of having a different config file for each archive - unless each archive is so different from the other?)
