Documenting them is a good idea. Documenting all the ones that I did,
probably not. But I did it because I'm not totally sure which ones affect
the configuration. For example the MAC, OS2, and VMS ones I'll have to check
the respective toolsets to see if they matter or not. When they don't I'll
start removing the ones that don't. Of course if you know some of these
answers already speak or start removing the irrelevant ones ;-)
