setup.ini is generated by a program called "upset".  The current sources
are not available to the public since the program is not intended for
"roll-your-own-setup.ini" and the program is not something that I want
to receive patches for or questions about.

Older versions of the program are probably not kicking around out they
are not supported here.

If you want to generate a setup.ini use genini.  If you find bugs, then
proposed patches will be thoughtfully considered as long as they aren't
