I do not know if that helps, but for example man.el does autodetection
to choose from different syntax sed scripts.  It has a variable
Man-sed-script that is initialised the first time man is called in an
Emacs sssion.  

You could set up a -program variable as a defvar inited to nil.  The
first time your function is called in an Emacs session it checks whether
the -program variable is initialized and, if not, it does autodetection
and initializes it.  This way users can force the value of the variable
in their .emacs file.
