This is probably not directly relevant to you, but we have had a lot
of success using comma-separated values (CSV) files for configuration.
Our "configuration" requirements consist mainly of long lists of
advertising campaigns and targets, so obviously CSV files make a bit
of sense here.  Our campaign manager edits the CSV files using Excel.
The CSV files translate into in-memory 'string list list' structures
and are thus simple to iterate over and generate.
