Well, that's tricky. My projects live side-by-side in the same
CVS-repository. And I like to have the basic and common settings under
version control and a project-root "above" both project does not
work... So I'd like to have this solution.

And of course I can't redefine it in project b.
I'll have to think a little more about this.
Thanks for the insights.

remaining issues before they bite my again...
