[Mono-list] Testing .config files

Does anybody have any ideas on how to test the behavior/handling of
.config files?

It seems that the only way to test them is to have an executable with a
.config file to perform the testing.

Thus, to fit it into the existing Test suites, we would either need to:
 a) Add a new .exe to be generated as part of the suite and run it.
 b) Add a .config file for an already existing test suite (e.g.
    mcs/class/System/Test/RunTests.exe.config) and insert .config
    testing into the appropriate test suite.

Option (b) seems most appropriate, but there may be other ways to test
.config file handling that I haven't thought of.
