 In bbackupd.conf, it would be nice if the various application file
 locations could use variables, for easier editing.  Maybe a drive (for
 Windows) or device variable, and a path variable.

 For example, on Windows:
 KeysFile = D:\Program Files\Box Backup\10004015-FileEncKeys.raw

 could be changed to something like:
 BBPATH = \Program Files\Box Backup
 KeysFile = %BBDRIVE%\%BBPATH%\10004015-FileEncKeys.raw

 Here's a list of application files that could take advantage of this
 KeysFile = D:\Program Files\Box Backup\10004015-FileEncKeys.raw
 CertificateFile = D:\Program Files\Box Backup\10004015-cert.pem
 PrivateKeyFile = D:\Program Files\Box Backup\10004015-key.pem
 TrustedCAsFile = D:\Program Files\Box Backup\serverCA.pem
 DataDirectory = D:\Program Files\Box Backup\bbackupd
 # NotifyScript requires cygwin at the moment...
 NotifyScript = D:\Program Files\Box Backup\NotifyScript.sh
 SyncAllowScript = D:\Program Files\Box Backup\SyncAllowScript.bat
 StoreObjectInfoFile = D:\Program Files\Box Backup\bbackupd\bbackupd.dat
 PidFile = D:\Program Files\Box Backup\bbackupd\bbackupd.pid

 Similarly, it'd be nice to be able to use the same long list of exclusions
 in multiple !BackupLocations using a variable of some sort (or maybe even
 reading from an external file, or, egads, maybe even downloading from a
 web service of some sort).
