Now, I don't have a think against yaml, ini, or toml and they all work well but
for stuff that you can't pass via CLI options and for more permanent
I'm not against that but then the cli code has to take into consideration
parsing both the toml and the cli flags and decide priority / merge them etc
Here's how I plan to get it to work and it's not an original idea (obviously!
not a genius.).
If you've used
ytdl the original
library then it uses the cli flags as configuration by passing a youtube-dl.conf
file either locally or in one of the many user / global configuration
directories and that's perfect.
You get to keep a single layer of default values and single level of parsing,
unless you allow multiple values for the same argument, then maybe a little more
parsing but most libs support that.
