It can work like this if you want it to.
The thing is, you need to parse the config yourself, and do whatever you
like with it. The way we do it [1] is recursively parse the config structure
passed by the XS code (patches welcome!).
There are a couple more examples in my repos [2] although they might be a
bit outdated (sorry).

I hope this helps
