You don't need to build a parse tree.. I think building a parse tree is the
DOM. But you can even use a SAX interface which doesn't need to build a
tree in your memory...

But I don't think that memory is an issue in today's computer systems...
Just buy another GB of RAM ;-)))

Every program is configured in the same way... There is only one config file
format... that's the only difference...
