Simple use case: the farmer want's to change some values from the
default settings (without touching dokuwiki.conf for update safety)
but wants to allow animals to override them.

This could be done with the following setup (following tips:farm) if I
understand the whole thing correctly.

    'main' => array(
        'default'   => array(DOKU_INC.'conf/dokuwiki.php'),
        'local'     => array(DOKU_INC.'local.php', DOKU_CONF.'local.php'),
        'protected' => array(DOKU_CONF.'local.protected.php'),

Or am I completely on the wrong track here?
