Can this other configuration file also be used to override other 
parameters? For some of the larger pictures (metapost -> mptopdf) I 
need to enlarge both pdflatex and mpost to the largest sizes for some 
of their parameters. It would be nice if the system remembered those 
changes (or if they could be made in a location where they can be 
merged with your defaults (taking the largest of the two...)

You still need to read the other though, as all parameters are 
explained there...
