From discussion on bug 1192, Mathieu said

Suggest that these things need to be done:
- bug 845 needs to be fixed (config-store input/output checked and fixed)
- config store can be used to test, one-by-one, that setting an attribute introduces no side effects on other attributes (can we automate this?)

Also, related to bug 1212, there needs to be some validation of the paths generated by introspection program.  Not sure whether to put this in a separate issue but will leave it here for now.
