Do we have a way (or plans) for sharing tool parameter settings in Galaxy?

I know the following workarounds :

*         Share a history with all users: so users can import your step and do 
"rerun" to run on their own file with your settings

*         Wrap the step in a workflow with all parameters set and publish this 
workflow: users can run this "workflow"

*         Have a dummy tool to produce a settings file and allow the users to 
choose this file when running the real tool

*         Use a conditional and many macros that are basically a copy of each 
other, only differing in the parameter values

But what I would like to have is a way to define bindings between a settings 
file and the parameters in the tool form. Any plans, ideas?
