I don't foresee gigantic config files ever being a problem for LCDproc.
Now that I've set up an embarrassing moment later on in my lifetime
(namely when the above statement bites me in the butt), onwards and
There's just not that much to configure:
* Server defaults (screen duration, frames per second, heartbeat, etc.)
* Security (password, allow/deny list, encryption, etc.)
* Driver list
* Options for each driver
Drivers probably won't end up having *too* many options; a real LCD
usually only allows a few configuration options (like contrast,
backlight on/off, etc.) and the emulators (if any) would only care about
things like what scale to use, foreground and background colors, device
to emulate, and so on.
