I think that is a good idea, too... +1.  But that might mean that we need
some kind of preprocessor stage before we can parse.

I thought of that too, but I have some concerns when it comes to it...

- security... by changing any values it would be possible to start
  arbitrary code from there.

- config writer... it is quite difficult if the CW is just modifying
  the existing config file instead of writing down the contents of the
  structure.  I think that would be hard to read for the admin.

Let see how long it takes... but it comes in quite handy for me, cuz I
am quite busy with my dissertation these days.
