From what you have said here and on the other issue, reality has outgrown the current customization methods. If Python, Tk, and Idle were to run on Windows RT, I presume a different configuration would be needed than for normal desktop.

Any new scheme used in the config files should allow the config dialog to still work sensible. If a current value displaying in the dialog come from a special section, then I think user changes should propagate back to that section and not the generic setting.
