maybe I'm the only one with this problem but very often I have to fight
with this kind situation:

   - by default, I have a 14 MB Falcon set up, i.e. TOS, hard disk path,
   maybe even some floppy paths for "depacking" some MSA'ed images meant for
   - however, quite often I bump into an interesting ST demo or an app
   which runs only on ST, basically I want to run an ST

This involves quite a painful process to changing the TOS path, memory,
CPU, DSP, FPU all the other paths, ... just to try out something.
I think Hatari allows loading custom config files (I wonder why I'm so
lazy/stupid not to use it?) but it would be much better if Hatari offered
something like a saved configs for various machines, similar to WinUAE. So
you'd have say five initial presets: ST, STE, TT, Falcon and you could edit
them or add a new one, ideally with a "Copy from setup XY". I know, not
exactly a one liner, just in case you don't know what to do. ;-)

If you select different TOS version, that will also force a compatible
machine type, i.e. automatically set appropriate CPU options.  DSP
will be used only for Falcon type, 32-bit addressing is relevant only
for 030+ and most programs don't care existence of FPU.

I.e. you may get by just by selecting TOS (unless it's EmuTOS which
supports everything :-)).

I usually set it from command line, so path often is still in my
command line history i.e. I type for example ^R+"tos4" and shell
completes rest.
