Thank you for the tip Matthew and Martin. I've heard about proplib, but
never used that. I quickly searched for it on the internet and found
that NetBSD has a very good implementation of it.

It seems it implements a lot of data structures that we would have to
implement "from the ground" (I hope this English idiom is right) and it
is used on some utilities, like ifconfig, as I found in

Yeah, that is a very good tip, thank you very much. Of course we can't
use its import/export to/from files feature, since, if I saw it
correctly, it works with XML, which is not "editor-friendly" :-)

Thank you.
