Well, gnunetd does generate exactly such a configuration file (gnunet-gtk 
however does not).  As for renaming gnunet-gtk to gnunet, I don't think that 
is a good idea.  If a user is unsure which binary to run, well, 
gnunet-TAB-TAB will show a list and then the man-pages can help explain which 
one does what.  Just running gnunet-gtk btw, is not quite sufficient since 
you also have to start gnunetd -- and in particular for the first run when 
gnunetd may not yet be configured I'd think it'd be unwise to say that it can 
'just' be started from gnunet-gtk.  

Anyway, I hope all of these configuration/setup issues will improve once 
gnunet-setup is implemented (not that I have a clear timeline for that or 
anything).  If you want to help with gnunet-setup, please do so -- patches 
are always welcome.
