There are lots of different versions, I think this would be pretty hard
to do for all of them unless you got Clonto involved.

Oh no, forget that ;) The configurations on the BTTR site are really
rather useless, like 8Mb fast ram for OCS games... And certainly won't
work very well for original games (i.e., not cracks).
It is better to just ask what model you want to run against, say:
A500 + 1/2 Mb fast ram
I guess you could also default to A500 + 1/2 Mb fast, and as long as you
make the emulation as accurate as possible (all compatibilty options
turned on - for example, in this configuration:
http://www.caps-project.org/files/OCS_13_1Mb_800_600.zip) then I bet 99%
of games would run under these models.

Agreed even with my suggestion, any further tweeking than this (aside
from choosing a kickstart image) could be done by enablng the editing of
the command line string - it is for advanced users after all.
