What's the best way to set variables in your config file that can be used throughout your app?

Currently I'm using a series of define statements:
define('CUSTOMERGROUP',8);
...

Is there a better way, or what other practices do you guys recommend?

Are these values going to be editable by the user at any point? If they are then SiteConfig is a good place to add then. For code (devs only) I do as like you with define() statements.

Thanks Willr - these are dev variables only to be used throughout the code in multiple places, and often differ in production and live enviornments.
