Hey, we are OO people here, aren't we? :-) We can have pluggable configuration
system by ourselves:

@interface NSSystemConfiguration
+ localConfiguration;
- temporaryDirectoryPath;
- userHomeDirectoryPath;
- someSystemDependetVariable;
...
@end

And then have NSWindowsConfiguration, NSPOSIXConfiguration, NSOSXConfiguration
subclass variants. Only these subclassees should muckle with configuration
files (some can have writing methods in addition, for example), rest of the
GNUstep libs should use NSSystemConfiguration class and nothing else.
