 Putting configuration information into txt or css was a bad idea to begin

 that or something similar when some theme.cfg or plugin.cfg exists. This
 shouldn't be hard to implement while staying backward compatible.

 Not really.

 That would mean we would have to change every plugin/theme to support the

 What we have works in 95% of cases and we should be able to easily fix the
 other 5%.  We just haven't done it yet.
