I think the file makes a lot more sense - would keep you from ending up
with really horrible commandlines. Also, it would make it easier if you
want to set up different configs manually (the buildfarm script can
always manage).

What about the ability to pass options to initdb, while you're at it?
Like changing the locale? (which will break the scripts, but it should
only break them in predictable locations)
