Suggestion for ir.exe.config

Don’t you think ir.exe.config would be much readable with this syntax

 <ruby>

        <librarypaths>

              <path>..\..\Languages\Ruby\libs\</path>

…\External\Languages\Ruby\ruby-1.8.6\lib\ruby\site_ruby\1.8</p
ath>

…\External\Languages\Ruby\ruby-1.8.6\lib\ruby\site_ruby</path>

…\External\Languages\Ruby\ruby-1.8.6\lib\ruby\1.8</path>

        </librarypaths>

  </ ruby>

instead of this ?

Create a Custom Configuration Sections Using ConfigurationSection is
quite
easy

Thanks for suggestion, this should be doable even w/o Ruby specific
config section.
BTW, you application can actually use any configuration format you want.
You don’t need to rely on the default configuration reader when a
hosting DLR language (IronRuby).
