Does the configmgr need the component context just for
Components::getExternalValue, which I imagine is to handle stuff like

officecfg/registry/data/org/openoffice/System.xcu work, i.e.

    <prop oor:name="Locale">
      <value oor:external=
          "com.sun.star.configuration.backend.LocaleBackend Locale"/>

where a com.sun.star.configuration.backend.LocaleBackend has to be
instantiated to get the value for the locale ? Or are there other uses ?

I suppose
for config items that don't/can't instantiate uno foo for their values
officecfg::Office::Foo::Bar::Baz::get(context); for ones that do/can is
probably not practical ?
