I am a complete Symfony beginner and I'm getting nowhere fast, so I need help Smile

Much like in the Jobeet tutorial, I'm using config/ProjectConfiguration.class.php to initialize my application with some libraries I'd written in a previous project, so it looks something like:

  static protected $libsLoaded = false;

  static public function registerLibs()
    // Determine if the libraries have been loaded
    if (!self::$libsLoaded)
      require_once (sfConfig::get('sf_lib_dir').'/vendor/mylibs/libs.php');
      self::$libsLoaded = true;

  public function setup()
    // Enable the Doctrine plugin

    // Enable the required libraries

The problem is that I need to include a specific file, depending on a configuration setting.
For example, let's assume I need to include an accounting library based on a country, I was hoping I could define the country setting somewhere and then use sfConfig to include the required file.
I really wanted to place my setting into settings.yml, but that didn't work. So I tried app.yml. Also didn't work. As far as I can see, certain setting files aren't loaded at this point (ie. within ProjectConfiguration.class.php).

So my question is, if I wanted to do something like:

  filetoload: canada

require_once (sfConfig::get('sf_lib_dir').'/vendor/mylibs/'.sfConfig::get('app_filetoload').'_libs.php');

What is the best (ie. most correct in Symfony world) way to go about it? Which files would everyone recommend editing?
I would like this to be on an application wide basis rather than per module.
