What are those config strings really for?
File path delimiters aren't something that should have to be specified
in a separate "config file".
As a long-time Mac user and victim of Apple's brainwashing, I hate
config files, so I'm always sceptical about proposed schemes of config
files. (Of course, I don't want to veto anything, I just want to
dissuade people from inventing config file schemes "just in case we
need them one day").
