XML as config format must die :-) ZConfig has the right balance between

The weak point at this discussion (as I mentioned earlier) is that we
are discussion about a format and not about a flexible configuration
that solves the problems at ZConfig has. The format used at the end to
feed the framework with data is pure syntactical sugar.
I don't think ZConfig does too bad a job in this area either ;-)
The idea to use schemas makes sense especially because schemas seem to
provide everything you need right now. The only thing I have no clue
about is how one would define hierachies through schemas (possibly
through nested schemas)?
I dunno that schemas are such a good fit here, but maybe that just
demonstrates my lack of knowledge about them...
