Elektra is also easy to use and does not depend on external libraries. The
difference is that we realized that there is no perfect format for storing
configuration so we leave that decision out. We introduce a global namespace
for configuration in an operating system independent way. This allows a
programmer to identify keys without knowing where they are actually stored,
which could be EET, but also a configuration file, berkley db, the windows
registry,.. realized through backends.
See http://www.libelektra.org/GetStartedMounting how you can set the key

Sounds very nice, I will have a look at it. The disadvantage is that you can't
read or edit that files. But it would certainly be a very good backend if you
need very fast reads.
