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.

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?
