Hi Jos Long time listener, first time caller here. As a fan of Config::Auto, I have a couple of suggestions, viz: 1. Use YAML::Any instead of YAML for, erm, YAML configs. Might change the behaviour as different flavours do do some slightly different things (untainting data from files for example), but there will be speed improvements if any Syck or XS are available. 2. Reload config files after X time. Most probably this is out of scope, but being able to check config files every 5 minutes and, if they've changed, reload the config, would save a lot of system restarts, IMO. As I say, probably out of scope, but something I think could be useful, even if it's via an extension or wrapper around C::A Anyhow, with my tuppence worth delivered, if you think either idea has legs I could have a stab at implementing them and pass you the results. Cheers Robbie
