This sounds like a case where we should provide a file that sets the
defaults so the user can copy to their own location. So, if we provide
"settings.pl", the user can provide "settings.pl.local" and override those
This file could look like...
# DO NOT EDIT THIS ORIGINAL FILE (settings.pl)
# Copy this file to settings.pl.local and make changes there
package Settings; # is there a better way to set a namespace?
# usermatchmode can be search, none, or wildcard
$usermatchmode = 'search';
# cookiepath, if not specified will be inferred from urlbase
# $cookiepath = '/';
