At the moment there is only one backend implemented, so it is still very much 
tied to the ini backend. As soon as the ini backend works as well as the 
current KConfig, the backend factory will have to be written, so the ldb 
backend that Aaron is working on can be added. So far I have mostly been 
moving code around from KConfigBase/KConfig/KConfigBackend to make the 
distinction between backend and KConfig more obvious. As soon as I can get 
kdelibs4_snapshot to compile with debug info I can debug the new KConfig
