> Of course, but I'm thinking of a newcomer who wants to use a simple bibliography tool. And the most simple (in my opinion) and flexible is bibLaTeX + biber. But a newcomer should not at all be forced to manipulate the texmf.cnf.

But a newcomer will never know how to start biber from within TeX, so why bother. He will just call biber after the tex run. This is BTW what I'm doing myself, don't caring for write18 at all.
