Weeeelll ... I get where you're coming from, but they're all different
tools.  That's an advantage, but also a weakness.  Having one huge file
that contained the setting for every tool I could see being rather
unwieldly.  Also, the idea is that you could have different options for
different behavior and you'd just select between them via command-line
options.  Putting all of that functionality into one super-file ...
well, I suppose it's possible, but I can't see it being a win.  I'm
not opposed to hearing about how we could do configuration better, and
I'll be the first one to admit it's not DOCUMENTED well, but I actually
thought the functionality was one of our better points.

I think that should be pretty straightforward, with the exception we don't
have any internal tools to show just ONE Received: line.
