* `cf_register' is called by plugins that wish to receive config keys. The
* plugin will then receive all keys it registered for if they're found in a
* `<Plugin $type>' section.
* `type' Name of the plugin (must be the same as passed to
* `plugin_register'
* `callback' Pointer to the callback function. The callback must return zero
* upon success, a value smaller than zero if it doesn't know how
* to handle the `key' passed to it (the first argument) or a
* value greater than zero if it knows how to handle the key but
* failed.
* `keys' Array of key values this plugin wished to receive. The last
* element must be a NULL-pointer.
* `keys_num' Number of elements in the array (not counting the last NULL-
* pointer.
* `cf_unregister' will be called for `type' to make sure only one record
* exists for each `type' at any time. This means that `cf_register' may be
* called multiple times, but only the last call will have an effect.

* `cf_read' reads the config file `filename' and dispatches the read
* information to functions/variables. Most important: Is calls `plugin_load'
* to load specific plugins, depending on the current mode of operation.
* `filename' An additional filename to look for. This function calls
* `lc_process' which already searches many standard locations..
* If set to NULL will use the `CONFIGFILE' define.
* Returns zero upon success and non-zero otherwise. A error-message will have
* been printed in this case.
