I think it is generally a good idea to have local .cfg files and find their
meaning in the local guide. Its implementation is straightforward. If there
is a need for such a local .cfg file, it can be placed in texmf-local which
is searched first. If it is not found there, the default .cfg will be read
from texmf-dist. Thus it will work for both kinds of users.
