I just thought of something, If there are no files, then our idea of how to 
determine which backend to use will need to be rethought. The idea was to 
have env vars specify which directories contain which kind of files, and have 
KConfig choose the correct backend based on that, but if there are no files 
then there are no dirs either, so how are we supposed to know if we are 
supposed to use the Elektra backend? Are you intending to replace all of 
KDE's config files with Elektra, as an all or nothing exercise? The intention 
was to allow the admin/user to be able to mix & match backends on a per 
directory basis. Will this still be possible with the Elektra backend?
