That's my thinking as well, though I wasn't going to go look in /etc
because that varies so much across systems. My plan was to look
in each of the following locations:

  1. In the JAR file
  2. In $HOME/.calabash
  3. In ./.calabash
  4. In any configuration file(s) named on the command line
  5. At command line arguments
