Hi Ernesto,

The main problem is that the value is not only saved if someone changes it.
It's stored as soon as someone presses "update" in the EM, so the value in
ext_conf_template.txt actually has no effect except during the first

The idea of using "" as the default is that we can just forget about all old
values and simply overlay this by the value in ext_conf_template.txt (which
is always the most recent value).
