As far as I can tell Elektra does not support configuration schemas.
If I am not mistaken Elektra currently treats all plain text key values as
strings. I think this is a feature and not a limitation. Elektra is
friendly towards existing application configuration schemes. If it
enforced key types (Integers, floats, strings etc...) things get a lot more
complicated and it is not clear this is the right place to enforce it.
Perhaps enforcing the input types at a configuration builder
API makes more sense, keeping libelektra free of the added complexity?
