If I remember a previous discussion correctly KAutoConfig doesn't address 
accessing config information from the C++ code of the application, but 
providing a GUI to the user for editing config information. One conclusion of 
the discussion was that it wouldn't be a problem to adapt KAutoConfig to 
access the information, e.g. about default values, from KPrefs.
