THAT'S a unix/linux/bsd thing... like "Will typing rm-rf hurt my Linux
install?" "It depends where you are when you do it."  =^)

I tried it on a test channel and it seemed to work fine... so I
proceeded with the rest.

using bin/config_list was still clunky, but not as clunky as having to
change all of them through the web.  Thanks for the help.

withlist seems very promising.  Time to add "Go Ahead and Start Learning
Python Already!!!" to my growing todo list.  A couple of custom tools
could come in handy.
