Many of those ...Options classes are indeed nothing more than thin 
wrappers around the configuration's UNO API, and could likely go away 
more or less entirely when you rewrite the clients to directly use the 
configuration's C++ wrappers.

There is no general and easy answer to that question.  (We of course 
want to get rid of sal_Bool, but we are stuck with it in the UNO API; 
and there's gotchas when changing from sal_Bool -> bool, e.g. if you 
change the signature of an overriding virtual function that way it 
silently becomes non-overriding.)
