Hi Richard,

Cleaning is always very welcome!

I think that to bring some more order to the root level settings, we should
eventually make more use of the optional section argument:


This is not implemented for groups though, but if you feel it could be
helpful I can add it.

> connections-wcs\aa\url=http://foo.com/geoserver/wcs
