Question: Would it be reasonable to make that a
requirement? It would make distributed configuration
of a group of servers easier.

That would be a good alternative.  It is a heavier
solution, because we would be parsing and reparsing
an already created object.

My view of a Configuration object at this point is
that it should be simple to create and simple to use.
Returning arbitrary objects (which would only make
Configuration serializable if all the stored objects
were serializable) should be out of the picture.  The
more I think about it, the less I like it.

Parameters should be equally simple to use and also
able to be Serialized.

Thoughts anyone?
