ok, i see where are you coming from, and i have to agree that you have
a valid point, however saying that the configuration will become
cumbersome is IMHO wrong, it *might* become cumbersome (depending on
how you write it), on the other hand it would give you the benefits
such as being able to do something based on 'location' ( /some/thing )
and based on extension (.ogg in my example)

error: one bad user found in front of screen
