This is very useful and I'll do that, thanks.

Yes, this is true.  In fact once the semantics of "device config" are
established, the actual file format is just a detail.  A UNIX-style
text file with name/value pairs would work if the names are the same
paths as the JSON hierarchy.  I'll look at adding support for this to
zfl_config.  If people really want XML as well, that can be done too.
