No big deal. The proposed architecture that Ryan listed (taken from the
blue sky discussion) has no inherent limit on the depth. There is no
"magic four" there.

In other word: there is no problem to run into.

During the parsing of the config, and the building of the internal
representation, the parser simply remembers a "node pointer" that
specifies where directives will be added. That node could be the top
level, or it could be twenty-seven levels deep. No biggy.
