Yes.  It can also be helpful when giving help over IRC, since you
can get reproducible results without assuming the user has a proper
text editor set up, but that is just a special case of scripting. ;-)

For everyday interactive configuration editing, config files have some
good advantages:

 - The settings are easy to read, well organized, and all in one place
 - The file can include comments.
