Thanks for the reply.

I'm not objecting to the general ini-style format (do I read you 
right?), but rather to the overloaded section names, the URI/name 
syntax, the 'set' prefix, composite applications, etc. Paste 
Deploy layers a whole mini-language on top of the ini format.

Sure, as long as Paste Deploy's config syntax is optional for 
whatever-we're-building. :^)

Ok, I need help: defining an entry point allows a plugin to 
advertise that it can satisfy that entry point, but you still 
need a configuration layer to actually wire it up, no? In which case:

   1) What does "automatically" mean?
   2) Aren't we back to discussing config syntax?
