Along these lines, what is the default location of a "global" conf file. 
  I would think it should be in /etc like most tools do. If we add code 
in to check /etc for one and then ~/ for one and make decisions on which 
one to use, plus the option to completely overwrite that with a command 
line option like what G just suggested should pretty much handle all 
possible scenarios.
