That's not an interface *I* want to use for any configuration storage. I
want this:

   whatever_class settings;
   settings[""] = QPoint(10, 10);

and then I don't want to invoke 'write_registry' or 'write_ldap' or
'write_ini' depending on configuration method that some other kind of
program has choosen. I want setting to be saved behing the back.

Speaking again about program_options and property_tree interaction: if this
is ever to work, I want property_tree to expose some "changed" events, like
W3W DOM has, that I can catch to sync data back to storage. Without that,
smooth configuration saving will be impossible.
