    @hdiedrich Hey! Config support suddenly is needed by the following reasons:
    
    - It saved us many times when security issue was found in some HTTP handler. The recent
example: http://docs.couchdb.org/en/latest/cve/2014-2668.html - users were able to handle
that problem without upgrade procedure, but with a single config line change.
    
    - Some users are disables default handlers, or provide own overlay, in order to prevent
or customize access to certain endpoints. Quite popular move is to disable /_all_dbs in order
to prevent sharing database lists for everyone. Another option is to replace default handler
with own from the plugin if you're going to change behaviour without patching the source code.
    
    - Somehow need to provide ability to register proxy and external handlers.
