A configuration command line similiar to a databases command line
interface would be nice to have.

The good thing with an XML configuration would be, that you could
validate it against a schema. Especially certain settings could be
unique. This would put an end to wondering why a conf. change has no
effect for an hour until discovering that the same value is set again
somewhere else in the config.

An XML command line however ... :)
