perhaps password protect the list somehow, for that extra security. Don't
want zones to dissapear due to a typo.... or somthing equally sucky.

config.c could easily be transferred to a file and loaded on boots instead.


Heh, my middle name is Christian :)  Anywho, good idea on the importing...I
think I will think about it :)  Of course, implementing it will be a tad bit
more difficult than thinking about it.  Nonetheless, I will add it in sooner
or later..probably before it's next release :)

I alo like the 2nd and 3rd ideas.  The format may not be possible without a
redo of the entire system and the way it is handled....maybe I am just
looking into it too far :0  **shrug**.  Hrm, the 3rd idea sounds pretty good
also....I will think about it and see who else replies to this message and
see their opinions...

Anyone else have opinions based on the above comments?
