It is just that I really can't see a major reason for doing that kind of thing (embedding that file) on my end. Well, I guess that is why in developing, different developers do different ways because we really have different approaches and styles. :-)

Sure, and also the particular requirements. FWIW, I do include that above mentioned two-lines standard config.fpw that I usually use, just because it's easier to maintain and the file cannot get lost or get modified unintentionally.

And you do not because you want to edit - "Path=something" probably? - which is what I'd do in a separate XML or INI or so.
