I can imagine. I don't know if it will help, but my Publib library
has a set of functions for configuration files that can make things a
bit easier. I assume that a large part of the problem is to modify
elm (or whatever) to select optional behavior via variables, instead
of #ifdefs or other static solutions. My routines don't help with this.
But after this has been done, they take care of the actual file I/O.

Which probably means that you don't want to bother.
(Personally, I wouldn't touch elm, but there may be other programs.)
