I don't really know either project, but looking at the pages suggests that
Elektra doesn't seek to do away with plain-text configuration files, but
rather have a library which parses those files and presents the
configuration information in a hierachical manner, much the way /proc does
for the inner workings of the kernel.

I think it's admirable, but not likely to work because of the enormous
number of configuration files that need to be worked with.
