Finally [!ActivateConfig "#ROOTCONFIG#\Feedreader" "Feedreader.ini"] from another skin of your suite. Nice!
Presumably if you "know" that the name of your config and skin are Feedreader and FeedReader.ini, you also "know" the name of the root config, and so this has really limited practical value in most cases. However I could see a use for it if for instance you have a "production" and "development" version of a suite that you have in different root config folders, and want to have a generic way to do that !ActivateConfig bang.

Actually not in all cases. Presumably you send your skin around in a *.rmskin but for example in GitHub you download it as X-master zips and you end extracting them and putting them directly as that in your skin path folder. Now you don't need to change the RootConfig Name (removing the -master from the folder)
