Adding additional configuration data

You can use the 'additional' attribute for stashing additional info, especially from additional_data method, i.e. $r->config->additional({foo=>bar});

Or..

If your modules need to store additional configuration data for their own use or to make available to templates, add a line like this to your module:

   Maypole::Config->mk_accessors(qw(variable or variables));

Care is needed to avoid conflicting variable names.
