Hmm, I never thought about running tbot from outside the "tbot-config"
directory.  If you feel like this is needed for your workflow to be
ergonomic, adding a -C parameter is definitely a good idea.  In terms
of implementation, I'd suggest simply changing the working directory
very early on in main if the -C parameter is present.
