Startproject/app template documentation confusing

For app/project templates I found the docs a little misleading when they say 'Any option passed to the startapp command' will be added to the context. This lead me to believe I could add arbitrary options to the command and pass them in to the context, which would make for some highly configurable app/project boilerplates. But, from looking at the source I gather by 'any options' they meant any valid options for the startapp/project commands.
Do you think it would be a cool feature to be able to pass any options or a file that defines additional context (maybe something consumable by ConfigParser)?
~/projects$ django-admin.py --template=/path/to/boilerplate --context=/path/to/bp-options.cfg myproject
I would definitely be willing to give this a shot if it is deemed useful.
