Is there any way to piggy-back off the Rails::Configuration stuff to set config variables for your own libraries and plugins in environment.rb? If it's possible, is it a good idea? If it's not possible, are there any other good examples of really neat ways to do this? There should really be a standard approach for doing this, given that the last thing you want to do when looking at new code is struggle to work out where the config lives. Currently I'm using my own little library for this, but it's not very nice, and certainly not very standard. The big requirement is that a library or plugin should be able to define a default value for a config variable, which can then be easily overridden in environment.rb. Cheers, Pete.
