Is there any reason that default values can't be set in the cabal code,
so that .cabal/config can even be empty and still have the default

By comparison, if I create ~/.w3m/config which just contains
"show_cookie false", that doesn't then set user_agent to the empty
string -- it uses a fallback value hardcoded in the source.
