	Naming conventions is a suck & see :-) look for something that seems
related, and put it next to it.

	The schemas (XML description of settings and their defaults) live in

	If you do:

	git grep -3 ExperimentalMode

	you should get a manageable set of hits for a single config setting. I
don't think you'll easily be able to use the nice new syntax that
Stephan created:

if (officecfg::Office::Common::Misc::ExperimentalMode::get( comphelper::getProcessComponentContext() ))

	style - since you want a list of items: which is (I'm afraid) harder to
do, you'll most likely have to use a twistier UNO API to access the
configmgr/ implementation, and may have more fun with the schemas :-)

	Hope that helps,
