The current Configuration Parser runs into issues with arrays not being parser and types not being coerced. It also requires a separate (!) external validator. This ticket tracks the status of replacing this with a YAML-based configuration file or similar.
- This would have the advantage of natively supporting arrays and other nested data structures (though the simplicity of this form pushes more complex tasks towards the database where they belong).
- We could also do better validation in-thread to prevent reloads from tripping up the server.
