Well, I think it's fine to have complex config if it's not the primary way people interact with your application

— E.g. people don't usually go around editing their .git folders manually

— Well of course

— But every user-facing config should be simple

— Yes, precisely

— Plus I've said this before but config is in fact a bad thing

— Naturally

— But there's really no other way for some things

— Like "address to connect to"

— (for the others: the reason I say that is that if you application needs config for something, it means it's too stupid to figure it out on it's own)
