I'm afraid there isn't, but you could use the delta() function. It gives
you all the commands that have been entered via the console and changed
the configuration. You should then be able to get the relevant commands
into your configuration file.

The main reason we don't offer a function to save the running
configuration directly is that our use of Lua, while offering tremendous
possibilities, is making it hard to serialize the configuration.
