In latest Haiku release (nightly) most of config files are a species of binary format, (for example ~/config/settings/ScreenSaver_settings).
As haiku is not BeOS, and as it is free and opensource, why not having all config files in plain text?
It will be more readable, parsable for shell script, and for other uses (tweak).
note : For R1 with legacy BeOS support this cannot be an easy task. But it can be done for R2 (BeOS will then be run in emulation mode, and some translation of files can be done).
