the syntax right now is great. very structured and simple. (my only
complaint is how location blocks work, partly is syntax and partly is
just how it works) otherwise i think it is great.

anything can be scripted and anything can have a UI thrown onto it.

i don't see how inf or xml or anything would make it any easier to
have to make a UI for different location blocks, rewrite rules, other
complex, and other freeform, non-cookie-cutter kind of configuration
items.

besides, infs are one-dimensional, creating a hierarchy on that would
be ugly and hard to read.
