The story of our lives ;)  You're free to adapt config.lua for your
purposes, it only depends on utils.lua for a few things.

I've thought about that.  All those times we just want a good robust
function to split a string into a list - bringing in a 8,000 line set
of libraries does feel like overkill.  That was the thinking behind
LuaSnippets - have a standard place to keep short & useful functions
and make it easy to search for them.

Of course, only goes one way, unlike say the win32 API for
ini files which allows for writes as well.
