Understood.  I'd like to get the usage in line.

Why should there be multiple?

Who do you mean?  I think it should be a habit for users to customize one
Config.lb.  Having many files makes it hard to keep them updated.  An
example of that is the Kontron abuild that only builds fallback.  The
Config.lb builds normal and fallback, so now abuild doesn't check the
"default" config file's build.
