I think it is quite hard to require that a parser for
config file X must exists for us to accept the library. It puts a great
deal of burden on the library author. Our focus should be on
the general core interface of the library s.t. we get a flexible
solution that can be useful in many areas.
Then if the author agrees to it, we can look at new parsers.
