At the moment, it is only me and Aaron working on it, but if we want to 
implement any other backends for KDE4, then something like this will have to 
be done, because the current KConfigBase/KConfig assume entirely too much 
about the file format.

Would these "resources" be a group of key/value pairs? If yes, then I don't 
see a problem with renaming the functions. If not, then what would they be?
