I looked at it very fast.

The KConfig interface seems to be very tight to its implementation in
the ini backend.

How a backend factory is invoked ?
What defines which backend will be used ?
How serious is the code under playground? Is it just tests or it will
be the new official configuration interfaces for KDE ?

Thank you,
