That would be awesome, we've had a couple of ideas for enhancements to

1. Check for some environment variable that points to a config file,
2. no environment variable? Default to a search path for a
specifically named file; home directory, current directory, path
for post-review, python path (maybe), etc.
The names / order above would need to be thrashed out, it is more the
