I can't see a benefit of this approach. At least for distributors it 
would get more complicated to install plugins with a specific default 
configuration, because that would mean all configuration informations 
would go into the setup.conf and it is no good idea to manipulate this 
file from outside.

I would like to see the first user of this idea to try to disable a 
plugin that prevents the start of the vdr because of binary 
incompatibility. Must be funny.
