Even though I don't have the time to review this library. I have one
comment about this...

My understanding from previous discussions is that this is the problem
domain for this library.

You are kidding right? How many times have you opened up a Windows INI
file in a text editor? How many times have you opened up an Apache like
*.conf file in a text editor? How many times have you opened up a file
inside "/etc" and changed it? For all those same cases there's usually
also the option of a GUI program to do the editing for you.
So I must ask; How can you think this domain is limited?
