Pre-configuration is, IMO, going backwards. If I have to rely on running
some tool to get to the code I want to use it's *much* less likely I'll
use that code. I've passed over many libraries, and I tend to use a
large variety of them, because they required pre-configuration.
Real portability means not requiring pre-configuration!
