So now for the potentially more contentious changes:

- I added an outer layer "applications" so that a ZDCF file/tree can now 
define contexts/devices/sockets for many processes (potentially on many 

- I wrapped the devices in an extra hash/dictionary which lives in an 
application object. Same goes for sockets in a device. This is to avoid 
naming clashes with future extensions.

Both of these changes make the syntax a fair bit heavier, but not 
significantly more complicated. In particular the former change makes it 
a lot more powerful, the latter more future-proof.

Again, I'd appreciate review before I run with it in my Perl implementation.

Best regards,
