I second that: In my opinion, commandline arguments should
override configuration files. And to make it less confusing
this should be independent of the order of the "-F config-file"
option and all the other command line options (so "-F foo -i eth0"
should behave the same as "-i eth0 -F foo".
I am not sure whether the "-F foo1 -F foo2" really makes
sense in any case, I tend to think it just causes
confusion and should be avoided/removed. If anyone needs
this feature he should speak up now. If for compatibility
reasons we have to stick to this, ok, but then this should
be documented somewhere.
