  1. configure -default to create a new LocalSite.cfg, as though the user hit save on the file path guesses
  2. configure -enable PluginName
  3. configure -set name value set any known parameter
  4. configure -install PluginName (install or upgrade, using the extension installer - may be more difficult dur to file ownerships..)
  5. configure -test checks the config for validity

the first 2 will make the buildTWikiRelease script much simpler.

Interesting idea. My one concern would be running configure as a non-web user. The advantage of always using the web interface is that the user is always "right".

agreed - this is partially to address the need to create canned cfg's to make the unit tests run, the build system go &c

especially as I've found myself writing code to do this at least 6-7 times this year, i figure one configure to rule them all would be apropriate.
