It seems like the previous version allowed the backend to decide on the
name, type, and number of config options that it understood, while this
requires the main program to have all that knowledge. Thus it does not seem
as good.

Just because it is a weston_config structure does not mean it has to
contain the contents of a weston configuration. A different compositor
could just extract any backend-specific details from it's own configuration
database and write a dummy weston_config containing them.
