Imo the namespace really is GVir::Config, not a GVirConfig namespace
totally separate from the GVir namespace, so it does not make the whole API
"very consistent", it just changes things.

It helps *but breaks every library user*. Which is why you have to
carefully weight the pros and cons. It makes things slightly nicer,
slightly more consistent but *it breaks every user*. This is what makes it
special and worth more considerations than a quick ack while everyone is on
holidays.

Yeah, under the assumption that what is in the bindings is right...

Really, let's just wait until the holidays are over, as far as I'm
concerned I wouldn't like having such a patch go in before I get a chance
to see it even if I agree with it.
