Subject Re: config reading/parsing

Right.  Doug and I talked about this earlier in the summer, maybe july?
At the time we both thought it would be nice for a callback to be added...
I actually suggested a getline() callback.  You just stuff a void * and
callback into the cmd_params and make sure it gets passed around and used
right ... should only be a few lines of code.
