What do you think of implementing D-Conf as a DVFS backend. It seems 
that configuration systems and VFS libraries have a lot in common:

* A deamon for access syncronization (That one client doesn't overwrite 
changes from another client when they try to edit in the same config 
file simultaneously). That's similar to connection sharing in a VFS.

* Change notification

* A tree like structure.

* Key-Value Pairs could be represented in the VFS as files, where the 
key is the filename and the value is mapped as file content or file 

That doesn't say anything about the storage system behind D-Conf. It 
could be plain text files, a single or multiple XML files, a database,...
