[IronPython] config files vs. env vars and site.py

The proliferation of custom config files has been the bane of my existance, lately. :)  And I just spent another night wrestling around with the propagation of environment variables.
My boss keeps saying that computers and programming are hard.  I don't see that as an excuse for keeping it that way.  Isn't this why we've created great languages and much more universally supported file formats?

As long as there's a programmatic way to set everything (perhaps with the helper methods on PythonEngine like Jim mentioned), you create any config-based scheme you want.
