The problems with current init is that
1. The vc-base parameter needs documentation
2. It's really mostly adds a single option

What should be done, really, is ability to don't specify vc-base at all, and
don't default it to "vc6" or anything.

Hmm... I don't understand the above... maybe you've pasted only part of what
you've intended to paste.

Is there's such option ;-)
