I think that would be the best solution. But the problem is that most (all)
of the programs would have to be converted to use the library. If only few
programs used the central registry, it wouldn't be of much use. Therefore
the API should make the conversion easy. Unfortunately I have no idea how
this could be done because every config file has it's own format.
Such a library would be wonderful if all programs used it. It is very
important that the library should offer the possibility to store the data
in text files (maybe with an appropriate directory structure).

just my thoughts
