Sort of done. I'm going to completely reimplement the config storage
methods tomorrow morning during Hollyoaks. 

Basically there will be a method in Storage

	->config($namespace, $user, $list, $key, [$value])

Which will, based on whether you passed a value for list, value, or both
will get (or set) the value of $key based on a heirachy

	per-user, per-list
             per user
             per list
          system default
         plugin default

which might seem to be overly complicated but is actually quite simple
to implement and the API will be really easy to use.

Wait until I do the config work. Although the API will just be the one
above so you could use that.
The thing I've been thinking about is installation but I'll put that in
a more coherent mail later.
