Thanks, I like the idea. However, I think it would be better to make
both the path to the defaults file and the path to the configuration
file itself configurable (i.e. add a new environment variable
AUR_CONFIG_DEFAULTS). By default, /etc/aurweb/config.defaults and
/etc/aurweb/config could be used.

Best regards,
