Ah yes - you do know about $HOME/.rebar/config yes? This is a global
rebar.config file - not every setting in it gets overridden though. It
depends on whether the rebar module in question (rebar_eunit,
rebar_core, etc) explicitly asks for local config or not. IIRC the
compile and eunit compile options do get passed through - but in deps
are overridden by the local config still - hence my idea for a patch
(see later in this thread).
