No, calling register_opts() at a different point only fixes the import issue you originally complained about; it does not fix the problem that the configuration option is evaluated at the wrong time. The example code you included in your original email evaluates the configuration option at module load time, BEFORE the configuration has been loaded, which means that the argument default will be the default of the configuration option, rather than the configured value of the configuration option. Configuration options must be evaluated at RUN-TIME, after configuration is loaded; they must not be evaluated at LOAD-TIME, which is what your original code does. -- Kevin L.
