Editing the configuration file works fine for me at the moment because I
build everything including the toolchain.

It's just not nice and might not work all the time -- considering
rumpbake is going to be installed by packaging system and the default
rumpbake.conf buried in some directories that user of the toolchain
doesn't have permission to edit.

Also right now it is a file that is in version control, so editing it
is annoying
when working with upstream.

Being able to specify an alternate config file or put all the arguments on the
command line is much easier for automated builds.

Also editing the config file requires users to understand the
implementation of rumpbake. Arguably it's just a simple shell script but
I don't think end user should really know that much about that.
