Done.  See http://wiki.lazarus.freepascal.org/xmlconf.

In doing this, a few extensions come to mind:

1)  Ability to set the string values used for boolean constants, as is 
possible in some other components.

2) A method Setkey(Paths:array of Widestring) which would clear the 
existing key stack and add each element of Paths as a separate stack 
element.  (This is just a "convenience").

3) Ability to enumerate the siblings and children of a node.  This 
ability exists in the TXMLDocument object used by XMLConfig, but as the 
object is declared "protected", it seems impossible to achieve this 
without modifying TXMLConfig or creating a descendant.

At the moment, I am planing to do the above and some 
current-project-specific additions in a descendant class, but if the 
above is of general interest, I could either produce a patch to 
XMLConfig or a descendant class for the 'general' extensions.
