Sorry, I was just referring to the data part of sysconfig,
not sysconfig itself.

Having a lookup function much like we have for unicodedata
makes things much more manageable, since you don't need to
generate a dictionary in memory for all the values in the
config data. Creating that dictionary takes a while (in terms
of ms).
