In the compose tools we use, we don't call splittree directly, rather we 
import splittree as a module and set some variables that way, then call 
splittree.timber().

The particular compose tool I'm working on, pungi, will have the configurable 
items in a config file, to allow for easy reproduction.  I don't necessarily 
think they belong on the CD itself, as much of the config will be specific to 
the compose environment, which may not necessarily match what is external 
(repo locations, compose destination, etc..).
