buildtarget uses a thirdparty config parsing thingy in python to
first load the set of available options (from Options.lb) and then
read their values. (Config.lb)

We were discussing an overlay config - that is applied after the
current Config.lb if specified in an environment variable. Is that
still interesting? Would it solve the problem? I think that's a quick
hack, I could take a look.
