Hi Nate,

We have our internal server running scripts and referencing variables  
in custom paths.

So for example;

Some one runs a Python script of http://intranet/batch

The batch.py references some variables defined in certain paths.

I need a good way of defining a path with multiple vars like FOO=/foo:/ 
bar... etc...

I'm not having too much luck with setting vars in /etc/sysconfig/httpd  
either.
