Full commit
This module is very simple.  It imports the configuration
we have written for yt.
Everything will be returned in a global config dictionary: ytcfg

# Now we have parsed the config file.  Overrides come from the command line.

# This should be implemented at some point.  The idea would be to have a set of
# command line options, fed through an option parser, that would override
# the settings in ytcfg.  *However*, because we want to have the command-line
# scripts work, we'd probably want to have them only be long options, and also
# along the lines of --yt-something=somethingelse.  The command line scripts
# would then not get their options from sys.argv, but instead from this module.
