I don't think Shauns proposal addresses the issue, really.
If you want an app to be usable in different environments, then there
are some good solutions:
- make sure the app is self-contained and manages all of its settings itself
- make your app smart enough to pick up the relevant settings from the
different environments you want to support
And there are bad solutions, including:
- making the app drag along half of its original environment, via dependencies
