So far, I'm agreeing with you.

But can we take a step back? I want it to be easy to debug the 
configuration and why a specific module is loaded.

And you proposed to split the configuration into several .pa files at 
PulseConf, even if the exact directory structure wasn't really worked 
out. That seems largely related to this issue.

I'm just thinking - if we're replacing gconf anyway, can we come up with 
something more unified/generic that would fit in the new directory/file 
structure, instead of inventing a new type of configuration storage for 
this particular problem?
