Fire indeed.

I've never seen lua except for Brians examples just now, and lua seems 
usable. XML is just as horrible as our current config scheme and 
wouldn't add much IMHO.

I could add more fire to this, just to stir things up a bit:

Those who can't grasp lua probably couldn't grasp our current config 
scheme either. I reckon those would be better served with a shiny 
web-based pointy-clicky config interface, and those people probably 
couldn't bother less what was happening under the covers...
