I see what you mean. It could be an option. However, I rather build more 
checks into the install script.
There can be tons of checks for existing directories, proper paths etc 
that can be done to make sure that the data entered is correct. That 
would eliminate the need for such a file and make it even more user 
friendly and also more secure.
