	I'd say just make a small dsl or just  configuration object for  
unicorn options and let people use the dsl/object in their config.ru  
files.  Since config.ru is just ruby you can put any ruby code in  
there. Have folks put their unicron config code right at the top of  
config.ru. Will that work?
