One of my reasons for wanting to introduce a configuration file is to
improve the multi-user case so that it's easier to make all users use
the same settings (umask, compression, hardlink, nlevels, max_size,
etc.), so I haven't considered having a per-user configuration file --
<ccachedir>/ccache.conf is per-cache.
