I disagree.  I run multiple virtual web servers on one
physical machine.  Several of them run different gitweb
instances, each with different configurations.

With this "params in" approach, I have to
run it multiple times, once for each web server I run.

I _really_ would prefer an "include from ." feature
where I can place the specific parts
in the same directory where gitweb.{pl,cgi} is installed.

We really need to separate out these config values
from the gitweb.{pl,cgi} script itself.  We _need_ to
be able to update the gitweb script independently,
and easily.

Let's just make sure it is a separate config file, please.

I posted a patch to this end back on March 22 or 23 or so
as well.
