At first I'm on windows XP so I don't think that soft links would

At second I want actually to add more than one tree ;-) 

My main problem is that there quite a lot of configuration files
which look like good candidates (I found texmf.cnf, texmfcnf.lua,
context.cnt, contextcnf.lua.) and that I don't know where to put a
local version which will not be changed by updates.
