databases ?

hey, we are talking about maybe 100 variables in 5 files, that's 20
variables per file. and the parsing is a) not complex and b) only done
during bootup / when starting scripts. the program will be written in c,
so it will be fast enough. a database will not help, only make
everything huge and slow.
