[slicer-users] [slicer-devel] changing default config file

That sounds like a good idea, I'll do that.
Does anyone have an idea for a hack that would temporarily solve this
problem?  Could I try to build my own Slicer and change a header file
somewhere that defines the defaults, or is that more trouble than its worth?
  As I read over my initial question, it sounds like I was proposing a
change to the software, which is great, but I'd settle for a hack at the
moment if it were possible.
