Sorry to be a wet blanket, but I'm still having difficulty getting my head around the concept of untrusted config files:

We handle the problem a little differently - config files are .gz encoded lua tables. easy to view (winzip etc.), but safe from inadvertent editing. Loading just needs to unzip before passing text to Lua loader.
If a client CAN edit something, they will (and deny it to your face).
