- Code generation: describe your configuration in an XML file, and use
  `kconfig_compiler to generate classes that read and write configuration
  entries.
- Cascading configuration files (global settings overridden by local settings).
- Optional shell expansion support (see [docs/options.md](@ref options)).
- The ability to lock down configuration options (see
  [docs/options.md](@ref options)).

KConfigGui provides a way to hook widgets to the configuration so that they are
automatically initialized from the configuration and automatically propagate
their changes to their respective configuration files.
