No you have to provide minimum config files (unless you write your own
root resource that doesn't need them, not a very difficult task). You
will always need at least one file (the pickled version of the root
resource) though.

You can write a program that will use the ResourceStoreManager will
list all available resource stores, and read them etc. Check the
ResourceSalvager which does something like that
