Variable substitution and other goodies in trac.ini

It would be useful to include some variable substitutions when processing trac.ini.

Example ONE

authz_module_name = ${PROJECT_NAME}

would translate ${PROJECT_NAME} into the short project name (the folder name).

¿What situation would this be useful in? Considering in some setups, where using a parent environments folder, and a parent subversion repository folder, where each trac env uses a different subversion repo (usually with the same name), this authz_module_name option would be included in the global trac.ini and inherited by all projects.

Example TWO

Inherit the value defined in the global trac.ini, like:

repository_dir = ${INHERIT}/transporte

So, the global trac.ini could define the base parent repository_dir, and each project the subdirectory. If the parent SVN folder is moved or renamed, only changing the global trac.ini is necessary.

Please add more examples and situations where this could be useful.

I like the syntax buildout uses for this: ${section:option}. Would definitely be useful to me.
