So..... I have an xml file which lists the (say html) parameters.
parameter X
Description: it does this
Values {a, b, c}


Any application that can read XML can then pick up that file...
then use a user response (pick one from list, enter integer etc)
to set a value.

Application then writes out a customization layer, in XML.

:-) Sounds good to me.

Is that the idea Camille?
