... at the expense of insane complexity and amounts of indirection IMHO. but 
for something that must read everything, that's probably unavoidable.

this is why i personally am of the opinion that elektra will be useful for KDE 
apps for bridging to things like X.org's config, but not particularly useful 
for either servers such as Samba or KDE's own configurations. 

in the former, directory services are where i believe we ought to be pressing 
forward to (for the sake of admins everywhere, and because that's what the 
market (aka "people writing servers") have arrived at already).

in the latter, we don't need the overhead of kconfig->elektra->INI when we can 
just go straight to INI.
