Removing a magic value in favor of a variable

I added $config['kolab_tags_per_folder'] = 100 to /etc/roundcube/ and it works for my installation. For the PR, I created a new file plugins/kolab_tags/ where the variable defaults to 100, but I am not sure if this is enough. Where is the best place to put the new variable so I do not break any other installation with my PR?

While changing the magic value fixed the problem for me, I'd like to create a PR that changes the magic value to a variable (e.g. $config['kolab_tags_per_folder'] = 100). Unfortunately, I failed to access the global configuration from class kolab_tags_backend. Other plugins use something like $this->rc->config->get('config_name').
