Request: to have a "main" configuration file, which is referenced by the application before individual settings can be overwritten by a local file (e.g. in the local directory). For example the main configuration file would contain references to a mapper file, and various baseline settings, and the local configuration file contains autoexec commands, and adjustments for the context of the current working directory.

    -conf main.conf -conf game.conf

    or -userconf -conf game.conf

    Great, thanks. I'm not sure why I managed to miss this in the docs, presumably because I was expecting it to be the default behaviour.
