Where to place and initialize application params

the first places I can think of are environment.rb and application.rb. I
just wonder if these files should be used to configure the rails
environment or plugins/engines.

If the common way is to do it with environment.rb and application.rb my
next question is: how do I access a simple param in environment.rb like
"application_name = "My fency rails app" in my application.rb?

Hmmm, just a thought: Could it be done with YAML, maybe?

Have a look at this:
