Freevial should load some basic configuration from a INI-like file (~/.freevial/config, or /etc/freevial.conf as a fallback).

Whiteboard

If it should be an INI-like file, use the ConfigParser module from the python standard library: http://effbot.org/librarybook/configparser.htm
Additionally, YAML syntax is also good and easily understandable: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/YAML here a good python module: http://pyyaml.org/wiki/PyYAML --Markus Mayer

Yeh, we are already using SafeConfigParser for the skins, so we will likely do the same for the config file (once we have some ideas on what to put there). But thanks for the suggestions :). Notes to myself: Also, the xdg module should be used to determine the config file's location. --RainCT
