It's been requested by more than one person.  I agree that's it's
simple enough to edit the main sbopkg.conf but I guess there are a few
folks building packages for 12.1 and 12.2 and want to be able to
switch back and forth easily without having to constantly edit
sbopkg.conf.  I doubt most will need to use this feature, IMHO,
although it's possible that adding this will allow future
configuration of other options from within the dialog interface.
