Do you have reason why this should be a totally different format from
everything else in the system?

We should have a single meta-syntax for configuration information. I
know it is traditional in the Unix/Linux world to invent something new
and different everything the opportunity presents. Look at Samba,
Apache, etc. All different. This is, in fact, not clever, but
incrediable stupid.

You have chose the format that Microsoft abandoned a dozen years ago.
Could you explain exactly why a collation description has more in common
with MSDOS that say, for example, Firebird?
