That's fair enough. So what if a proposed common executable acted 
like this:

   1. A configuration file may be specified on the command line.

   2. If no config file is named on the command line, then look
      for one in certain locations:


   3. <foo>.conf does basic process config (address, user/group,
      threads, etc.) and hands off to a second-layer config (be it
      paste.ini, zope.conf, etc.)

   4. The following are added to PYTHONPATH *if they exist*:


Such an executable would satisfy me. Would it be flexible enough 
to meet your requirements?
