Now that you have a compact bitmap, would it make sense to prefix the Config
key for layers, with the boardname? Although this might eventually pollute
the configuration space, you'd have to do a lot boards to get there. This
way it remembers what layers you want for what boards.
The idea would be to put this information in the board, no preference here.
Is this anything worth considering?
