I've been looking into this too, just didn't get around to it yet. I
don't think it's easy given the current options parser. But simply
tracking all the config files getting loaded /would/ be easy. If you
output those, you can then target your grep much better, so I think it
might do. Tell me if you go for it, 'cause then I won't. ;)
