Forgot about that.:)

Maybe it's too early to do serious forecasting about the specifics of this 
feature, because if I remember right the libs are going to be refactored.  So 
maybe the final look of this should wait until after the libs are refactored 
and we can see what is needed and how it would be used. If all of the uses of 
this feature are at a higher level than KConfigXT then we could just use 
that. OTOH if this feature is needed at a lower level then we could use 
something like the enum to string macros mentioned earlier on this thread. So 
I propose to pick-up this discussion at a later date after the libs are 
refactored. Anyone know how soon that will be?
