Mostly not need. Current configuration file is big cause it there are many 
explanations what we can do. Also it is "generic" :). Yes, we can specify some 
"static" configuration like pulling/pushing streams, static pointing to some 
directory with media files and few other options. But main work of this 
software is dynamic streaming. Someone push stream into it, and another one 
play it :)
Anyway, currently there are plans to move configuration to separated files (in 
conf.d style)

Also you can simply specify your own configuration file via defaults. For 
it works by default. Anyway I review configuration file and I will make it less
