I am not going to support personal configurations, the complexity is too
high, the maintenance and support effort is prohibitive. I tried creating
a way to do this last summer and had to abandon the idea. Apart from this,
it is killing for the performance of the i-Package.

Removing personal configurations (as most are created accidentally as the
user is using old style instructions with new behaviour tools) is as far
as I will go in acknowledging that these personal configurations exist.

I'd be happy to hand over TeX i-Package maintenance to anyone who is
interested in supporting the local configurations and everything else that
is not in there ;-)
