We should generally avoid global variables, and in this case, from
looking just at this patch, I'm not convinced we need to introduce more
global variables, isn't this object instantiated and deleted at the
cmd_config() function? So, can't we just pass it to any function needing
to access it?

I applied the first two patches.
