I see. I would argue that the old way of doing things was more sensible
though. It makes more sense to associate config options to the module /
sub-module to which they apply instead of chucking everything into one
place. Sub-modules should really be seen as separate modules. The only
reasons this sub-module concept was introduced was to avoid the
multiplication of plugins and to avoid the situation where 2 different
plugins would have to link against the same library (e.g. ffmpeg).

Anyway, I'll update the wx interface since you don't have the courtesy
of at least attempting to minimise any breakage when you make API
