Pro-tip: Supermodel will dutifully save and spit out all config file settings, even mis-typed and invalid ones, whenever it writes a new file (which only occurs when configuring inputs). You can therefore create settings for your frontend in there, as long as you only need integers and strings.
You could create a TAFOID_ROMPATH setting that only your frontend recognizes:
TAFOID_ROMPATH = "c:\r0mz"
The drawback is that you have to parse the file on your own. If you already have an INI file parser, it should be possible to get it to do the job. Or, you can use INIFile.cpp from Supermodel, but beware the GPL license
