Description
This whole thing with defining constants for everything just isn't working. We need a real configuration management system. Nothing fancy, just a key/value store would be fine.

Requirements:
1) Default values for config vars.
2) Loading user config that over-rides defaults.
3) Callable from anywhere (no dependencies).
4) Can persist itself in 1 line of code, or thereabouts.
5) Support for non-scalar values would be nice.
6) Support for hierarchical structure would be nice.
7) Support for pluggable persistence layer would be nice.
