Default Limitations of Xilinx coregen or limitations with using Xilinx primitives in synthesis.

Hi people,
I was using an Altera FPGA for my WLAN MAC validation, In that one kind
of the primitive memory components are named as 'altqpram'. If I need to
use this memroy with different configurations (Ex:- different data bus
widths) I can genrate one altqpram template using the Mega Wizard (GUI
utility), and for my other memory cofigurations I can change the para-
meter settings manually, by changing the file generated by megawizard.

Now, I am needing to migrate to Xilinx Virtex-II, I am using Xilinx - ISE
on WIndows. When I use coregen to generate a primitive (memory), coregen
creates several files. Among these are the netlist files for the core
generated. Now, if I need a different memory component (Say, with bus
width changed) I have to regenerate the component with a differnet name.
I have not been able to find a way to get this configuration by manually
altering the files generated by coregen (This doesn't look straight
forward, atleast!).

Has somebody figured out a way of doing this?
