In my mind, the .ini file should be used to set *permanent* parameters. Things that you always need (for example the ecm path, ggnfs binary folder, and ecm pretesting preferences). Anything in the .ini file can be overridden on the command line. For me, threads is something I frequently change, depending on what I'm trying to do or what networked system I'm currently running on, so I always set that from the command line. Just my preference: customize the .ini as you see fit. The new .ini is simply meant to document the possible options.
