used by mkiv, most variables concern the minimals, some are presets for 
luatex (might change), some control mkiv (in principle one can set quite 
a lot of flags there, but if one does it can best be done in a local 
variant in e.g. texmf-local which will be read before the main one)

but while in mkii one will use that for tuning some behaviour (esp 
related to map files and metapost) in mkiv there is no reason or using 
this file general (at least not currently) but you can put local stuff 
in it; however, if you do so and report problems to the list, make sure 
that the origin is not in that file
