I guess it depends on what you mean by "personal content". Certain settings
are really part of distro policy and if you're finding that you're setting them
all the time for all of the builds that you're doing, it would make more sense
to create a distro layer that sets them - then it's simply a matter of
ensuring that layer is added to your bblayers.conf and you set DISTRO as

AFAIK the command line options in question were added to allow frontends to
inject configuration into bitbake rather than something the user would normally
use directly.
