+1.  (Note that Chris did major work on ZConfig, so his opinion should
carry a lot of weight.)

The only thing that matters for me with configuration languages are:

- Examples
- Documentation

If it is standard config files or xml files doesn't matter one little bit.

People that are having a hard time using an xml based config file should really use a graphical interface instead.

Besides, I find it odd to have two different config formats in one piece of sotware. The lines between site configurators and product configurators will probably very rarely be sharp.
