It depends what you're trying to do in your configuration file. As Luiz said, If you just want to get some text strings from the global table, it is pretty simple, but this is quite limited as you say.

It is hard to give you code, without knowing exactly what you want to do in your configuration file.
However, this is a little application I'm in the process of developing to track if there are any commits in a mirrored git repository that I haven't merged into an associated fossil repository. Maybe it'll be useful as an example:

I would be a little cautious, purely because the library will let you achieve a lot, possibly without having to learn the underlying concepts. You may suddenly find yourself massively out of your depth if something gees wrong, or doesn't work how you expect.
