I'm attaching a new version that includes this config key. By default 
the old naming schema is used, while for the single mode the new naming 
schema is always used since there's no backward compatibility to be 
preserved. You can use the previous file[1] for the 5.0 branch where 
only the new naming schema will be used.
A new man page text is still lacking, maybe I'll write it in the next days.


[1] I've found an error in a comment ("waist" instead of "waste"), but 
it doesn't really matter.
