This already exists in the form of:

         There are three possible config files: distutils.cfg in the
         Distutils installation directory (ie. where the top-level
         Distutils __inst__.py file lives), a file in the user's home
         directory named .pydistutils.cfg on Unix and pydistutils.cfg
         on Windows/Mac, and setup.cfg in the current directory.
