I believe code regarding Clusterconf should be removed from G-Tablix.
Clusterconf is a utility that was written specially for Tablix on
Morphix distribution and it is not (and should not be) used anywhere
else. Most certainly G-Tablix should not depend on it.

0.2 branch of Tablix will be much more flexible once it is finished.
There is an example version 0.2 configuration file on the Wiki. Among
other things, it will allow you to name each day.

On the other hand I don't think a central configuration file for Tablix
would be a good idea. What settings exactly would be stored in there? I
can't think of many settings that do not change between different
timetabling problems.

| One could also set PVM_ROOT here.

PVM_ROOT environment is required by PVM, not Tablix. It is also only
required when PVM is installed by hand. Binary packages usually don't
need it (for example Debian PVM packages). I don't think code for
detecting this should be in Tablix.

Bostjan, would it be also possible to change the top directory in the
tar.gz from "project" to something like "gtablix-0.0.7"? It is a kind of
