        I would not drop it that fast, I mean: I've seen Anthony's
implementation, and it works, but the description language is somewhat
limited to be plain. Ok, the main problem is not the language, but the

        With your language proposal it may be made easier for parsers
(being something like XML) in config utilities to work with. In fact,
a parser for that language that generates an in-core tree structure
with everything it's seen in the file is quite easy to code.
