I would prefer to make some changes to setup script to make it easier
to use. If connection with empty config fails, we point user to setup
script, he configures everything and then it attempts to save config.
If that fails, we can offer it for download.

The "BC" code is now used everytime, having full config.inc.php only
does not allow us to change things that most users won't change like
function defitions. Maybe it's time to move these things out of config
as we do modify them anyway later according to MySQL version.
